The New York metro and Long Island regions will soon be serviced by two 100 percent electric FUSO eCanter trucks recently implemented by A. Duie Pyle – premier provider of asset and non-asset transportation and supply chain solutions. The company is one of the first in the United States to operate the world’s first fully electric-powered medium-duty truck.
“We are proud to be partnering with A. Duie Pyle to employ the first few of the FUSO eCanter trucks that are in operation here in the U.S. and other world markets,” said Bill Lyons, Vice President, Sales Operations at Mitsubishi Fuso Truck of America, Inc. “We are aware of Pyle’s significant contribution to sustainable practices, and value partnering with companies who do so. We are excited to see the positive impact these trucks have on not only Pyle’s fleet, but our environment as well.”
This green addition to A. Duie Pyle’s Bronx service center supports the company’s Environmentally Conscious Operation (ECO) Program which aims to incorporate sustainable practices into operations. Additional efforts to support the program include a 1 megawatt, 100 percent solar powered warehouse, paperless dock management and handheld systems, and electric forklifts.
“Sustainability efforts are a key component to Pyle’s continued success as an organization,” said John Luciani, COO of LTL Services at A. Duie Pyle. “Having successfully implemented sustainable practices both small and large across our company, adding electric trucks to our fleet was a much-anticipated goal for the future. We are excited to introduce this groundbreaking technology into our operations.”
