Orange EV will give a panel presentation entitled “Racing into the Future: What the Next Generation of “Smart” Equipment Means for Intermodal” at the upcoming Intermodal Association of North America (IANA) Intermodal Expo in Long Beach, California. The 2018 Expo takes place September 16-18, 2018. Session details:
Other panelists include Peloton Technologies, Volvo Trucks, and Konecranes. The session summary states:
“The splashy roll-out of the Tesla Semi focused attention on the autonomous and electric truck of the future. But in many ways, intermodal terminals and short-haul dray are much more natural applications for alternative-powered trucks.”
Yes they are! Terminal trucks (aka yard trucks, hostlers, spotters) fit into the alternative energy sweet spot: that operational scenario where the technology gets the job done while also benefiting the business’ bottom line. Orange EV is the leading OEM providing industrial fleets with heavy duty electric vehicle solutions that are proven to save money while being safer, more reliable, and preferred by drivers and management alike. Commercially deployed since 2015, Orange EV is the only manufacturer offering 100% electric Class 8 vehicles that have been commercially deployed and re-ordered into container handling operations.
In the IANA Expo presentation, Mike Saxton, Orange EV’s Chief Commercial Officer, will share key insights regarding the deployment of heavy-duty electric vehicles into intermodal operations. Join Orange EV in Long Beach on September 17th!
