PGT, a multi-service transportation firm offering flatbed, dedicated, international and specialized services, will immediately utilize the full-electric Nikola Tre truck on a select customer account, primarily operating on local, dedicated routes.
Comments on PGT purchasing the first Nikola Tre BEV truck
“Our customers have expressed a need for sustainable shipping solutions, and we are working to align ourselves with their green energy commitments. With the purchase of the Nikola Tre BEV, PGT is prepared to meet these demands,” stated Gregg Troian, PGT Trucking President. “PGT will continue to revolutionize the industry through the Future of Flatbed, utilizing innovative technology and zero-emissions equipment to provide progressive transportation services for our customers, enhanced lifestyle benefits for our drivers and sustainable shipping methods for the environment.”
Previously, PGT signed a letter of intent to lease 100 Nikola Tre fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) trucks, and PGT’s R&D Department will help prepare for the full integration of these units into PGT’s fleet, which are anticipated to arrive later this year. With the addition of the new zero-emissions equipment, PGT is on track to reach its sustainability goal, reducing carbon emissions from its company-owned fleet by 35% by the year 2025.
