Commercial Trailer Leasing (CTL) has partnered with Orange EV to deploy pure-electric, zero-emission, DOT-compliant yard trucks throughout the US. The e-TRIEVER yard trucks will be paired with onsite charging cabinets and will be leased to various customers within the food distribution and logistics industries.

The e-TRIEVER trucks feature an 81,000-pound gross combined vehicle weight rating and are capable of handling harsh conditions and heavy-duty cycles with a functional environmental temperature range of -40°F to 120°F with an average uptime of 98%.

By electrifying the terminal truck industry, fleets can see savings of $20,000 to $90,000 per truck annually through fuel cost reduction, emission control elimination, and powertrain and brake maintenance cost reductions.

Orange EV also notes that fleets can reduce downtime and operator turnover costs due to safer working environments produced with EV yard trucks while meeting or exceeding company sustainability goals.

“We are proud to partner with CTL, a company helping its customers not only meet and exceed their sustainability goals, but also reduce operating costs and provide a safer and cleaner working environment,” said Kurt Neutgens, President and CTO of Orange EV.
