Fleet Advantage announced it will place orders for 200 Class 8 electric tractors for delivery in 2023, a move that is the company’s first major purchase of alternative energy trucks.

This initial purchase will be placed in service based on duty cycles and supply chain locations with reduced radius operations. Fleet Advantage has identified a considerably greater volume of EV equipment that will complement their customers’ supply chain, reducing exhaust emissions and operating costs while enhancing corporate ESG goals, company officials said in a press release.

Fleet Advantage’s customer surveys combined with robust data analytics have targeted a 5-year plan to significantly grow its EV fleet working with America’s top corporate fleets.

“With the advancement of EV technology and growing interest in alternative fuel applications, we are excited to be in position to deliver new EV trucks for our customers,” said Brian Antonellis, senior vice president of fleet operations for Fleet Advantage.  

Fleet Advantage has 14,000 tractors under management and says it’s committed to assisting its customers’ transition to alternative energies toward a zero-emissions goal.
