Vion company facilitates expenses minimizing in cargos highway transportation
Tallin, Estonia -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/24/2018 -- The US cargo transportation market is mostly represented by trucks. More than 70% of cargos are being delivered by trucks and road trains equipped by diesel engines but since 2019 this market niche is expected to be filling by electro trucks. They have a wide range of advantages over diesel-powered vehicles. Vion creates favorable conditions for the market invasion by electric trucks.
Electric-powered vehicles are completely eco-friendly and moreover their using reduces prices for cargo delivering. Tesla Motors has already got 2000 trucks reservations from large US companies including PepsiCo, UPS and others. According to preliminary calculations in the next 5-7 years diesel-powered trucked may be replaced by electric ones by 90%.
Vion project is oriented to creating appropriate infrastructure for convenient using of electric trucks. The existing charging stations are insufficient for road trains servicing that may be regarded as huge obstacle towards trucks implementation into the US market.
Vion plans constructing 50 electric charging stations every 600 kilometers (minimal distance covered by one charging) along the main interstate routes. Those stations will be equipped by a rest-room for drivers, mini-market, café, toilets allowing charging 3 road trains in a row. The expected pre-tax profits is $60 million annually.
