Penske Truck Leasing announced it is working with EnerSys to put another battery-electric, medium-duty Freightliner eM2 into service.

As a provider of stored energy solutions for industrial applications, EnerSys will use the Freightliner eM2 throughout Southern California to transport product to customers and dealer facilities, answer emergency road calls, and shuttle tools and equipment to job sites.

The electric truck fleet is supported by a network of heavy-duty electric vehicle charging stations at six Penske Truck Leasing facilities in Southern California. Penske also performs preventive maintenance at these locations.

In 2018, Penske Truck Leasing and Daimler Trucks North America announced a partnership to test commercial electric trucks from the Freightliner brand in real-world situations and drive future improvements to the technology. The venture is supported by a partnership between DTNA and the South Coast Air Quality Management District, which focuses on improving air quality in large portions of Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino counties.

Penske Logistics ranks No. 15 on the Transport Topics Top 100 list of for-hire carriers in North America. — Transport Topics
