Orange EV and Sonwil Distribution Center, Inc., announced the 2017 deployment of Orange EV’s T-Series pure-electric terminal truck to Sonwil’s 300,000 square foot warehouse and distribution center in Buffalo, New York.
Sonwil was one of the first thousand orders for Class 8 12-liter CNG tractors, and now we’re moving into Class 8 electric. The Orange EV truck is a good fit with our mission, eliminating emissions and solving problems. And compared to the steep learning curve with CNG, the electric yard horse was easy – just plug it in.—Dave Harper, President of Innovative Transportation Services (ITS)
