Workhorse Group, a specialist in last-mile delivery, has announced that it has received an order for 20 of its all-electric C-1000 delivery vehicles.
The order comes from new launched trucking company, eTrucks.
Cincinnati-based eTrucks plans to function as a vehicle buyer and reseller and will be offering fleet funding programs and services tailored for different business needs.
Workhorse is a technology company focused on providing drone-integrated electric vehicles to the last-mile delivery sector.
It designs and build high performance, battery-electric vehicles including trucks and aircraft.
Workhorse also develops cloud-based, real-time telematics performance monitoring systems that are fully integrated with its vehicles and enable fleet operators to optimise energy and route efficiency.
Workhorse vehicles are designed to make the movement of people and goods more efficient and less harmful to the environment.
Workhorse Group CEO Duane Hughes added: “Bill and his partner Brian Carr are building a valuable sales and distribution platform for an underserved market.
“The SMB fleet operator represents a major opportunity for additional sales, and we’re looking forward to growing our partnership with another Ohio-based organisation to improve last-mile delivery for everyone.
“Pursuing sales agreements with resellers, like eTrucks, allows Workhorse to expand our sales reach and take advantage of economies of scale that would otherwise be unavailable through individual transactions.”
