Manhattan Beer Distributors Orders Volvo VNR Electric Trucks
New York City-based beer and beverage distributor Manhattan Beer Distributors has placed an order for five Volvo VNR Electric Class 8 trucks, the first zero tailpipe emission, battery-electric trucks to be deployed in Manhattan Beer Distributors’ fleet of more than 400 delivery trucks. These VNR Electric models from Volvo Trucks North America will service the delivery fleet’s routes to retail customers throughout metropolitan New York City in Long Island, and surrounding counties from one of the company’s warehouses located in Hunts Point in the Bronx.
Designed for local and regional freight distribution, the Volvo VNR Electric significantly reduces emissions for decarbonized transportation, reduced CO2 emissions, and cleaner air. The five Volvo VNR Electric trucks purchased by Manhattan Beer Distributors are the first commercial sale of this model outside of California.
Manhattan Beer Distributors is one of the largest beverage distributors in the US and the largest beer purveyor in the New York City area, serving nearly 25,000 customers from five operational sites located in and around metropolitan New York. For more than 20 years, Manhattan Beer Distributors has demonstrated a leadership role in sustainable transportation, driven by a goal of reducing the company’s environmental impact.
