Schneider Announces Participation in NACFE Run on Less – Electric DEPOT
GREEN BAY, Wis.(September 11, 2023) – Schneider National, Inc. (NYSE: SNDR), a premier multimodal provider of transportation, intermodal and logistics services, is participating in the North American Council for Freight Efficiency (NAFCE) Run on Less – Electric DEPOT effort, which focuses on the biggest challenges to scaling the deployment of electric trucks.
Run on Less – Electric Depot (RoL – E DEPOT) will evaluate battery electric vehicle (BEV) performance in real-world fleet operations, as well as the current state of electric charging infrastructure for those fleets. The goal of RoL – E DEPOT is to gather valuable data to help the industry broadly scale up the use of BEVs.
Schneider is committed to lowering carbon emissions in transportation and operationalizing zero emission technology, such as BEVs, and recently unveiled its large-scale zero emission electric charging depot in Southern California, which will power the nearly 100 BEVs the company plans to add to its fleet by the end of the year.
