PITT OHIO, a leading transportation, warehouse, and logistics services company, has integrated two Freightliner eM2 Class 7 trucks into its fleet, highlighting its commitment to sustainability. These trucks, equipped with 26-foot-long box bodies, will operate out of PITT OHIO’s Cleveland, Ohio terminal and support the company’s Less-Than-Truckload (LTL) freight shipping business.

DTNA aims to offer only CO2-neutral vehicles in key markets by 2039, provided the necessary infrastructure is in place and a favorable Total Cost of Ownership can be achieved for customers. David Carson, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Daimler Truck North America, emphasised the company’s commitment to providing innovative, safe, and reliable solutions that adapt to the changing needs of customers.

DTNA has been a pioneer in commercial electric vehicle development since 2018, offering a diverse electric lineup, including the Jouley all-electric bus, the FCCC MT50e walk-in van chassis, the Class 8 Freightliner eCascadia, and now the eM2. The sales process and delivery of the eM2 trucks have been supported by Fyda Freightliner, a DTNA Elite Support certified dealership serving the US Midwest.
