TRAVEL DIS­TANCE

Popular Mechanics (South Africa) - - HOW YOUR WORLD WORKS -

When you look at bev­er­age com­pa­nies and gro­cery chains, a lot of what they’re mov­ing is go­ing to be on a short-haul ba­sis, like truck­ing prod­uct from a bev­er­age dis­tri­bu­tion plant to re­gional dis­trib­u­tors. From an elec­tronic stand­point that’s a fan­tas­tic set-up. You don’t have to deal with diesel fuel and you’d be able to have that ded­i­cated in­fra­struc­ture set up for charg­ing sta­tions along the way while you go back and forth.” – JON SAM­SON Executive director, Agri­cul­tural and Food Trans­porters Con­fer­ence, Amer­i­can Truck­ing As­so­ci­a­tions
