Albertsons to roll with Tesla trucks

BY Marianne Wilson

Albertsons is making its Southern California fleet a little greener.

The supermarket giant announced the addition of 10 all-electric Tesla tractors to the fleet alongside its 2018 sustainability update.The new trucks will service Albertsons, Vons and Pavilions stores in the region, able to travel between 300 and 500 miles — sometimes more — on a single charge with a fully loaded trailer, using fewer than 2-kilowatt hours per mile.

“Advancing supply chain efficiency and sustainability is an important goal for our company,” said Tom Nartker, Albertsons VP of transportation. “We’re excited to pilot this expansion of our transportation program with trucks that help us limit our overall carbon footprint.”
