Partner Jeff Soble was quoted in a Supply Chain Dive
article, “UPS Buys 50 Electric Vehicles in Push for Sustainable Transport
,” about how electric vehicles will likely decrease maintenance issues and what last week’s UPS-Workhorse Group partnership to deploy 50 zero-emission electric delivery trucks means for the industry in terms of environmental sustainability and advancing technology.
“The average electric vehicle has a fraction of moving parts as an internal combustion engine, so the industry belief is that there will be fewer maintenance issues once the technology is commonplace,” said Soble. “If you're the first to market with a viable electric truck fleet … it's going to be a way to help companies become even greener and give them soft value in what they do.”
