Definace, OH – Keller Trucking, an award-winning carrier and 3PL provider, today announced the deployment of an Orange EV pure electric yard truck to a food manufacturing operation in Northwest Ohio. With this and planned future deployments, Keller Trucking is advancing their customer-commitment to provide responsive, resourceful, and reliable solutions that increase sustainability, safety, and efficiency.

Keller Trucking will deploy two additional Orange EV electric spotters before year-end and is seeking opportunities to further expand its zero-emission fleet.

"Orange EV's quiet, emission-free trucks increase the safety and well-being of site personnel and community neighbors while also delivering unparalleled 98-99% uptime, improving reliability and productivity."

Orange EV trucks are equipped with DTS™ (Digital Truck Systems) and onboard telematics which allow for monitoring, data-gathering, and analysis in ways never before possible with diesel. Utilizing Orange EV's advanced digital systems and software, Keller Trucking can provide customers with instant feedback and real-time performance statistics to further improve operational efficiency.

Jonathan Wolfrum, President of Keller Trucking stated, "Adding electric yard trucks to our dedicated services solution allows us to continue to provide our customers resourceful solutions to their specific spotting needs. Many manufacturers are implementing sustainability initiatives throughout their supply chains and having an electric yard truck as an option for them supports those company goals. The advantages of these electric trucks in this application are vast, they are very driver centric, cost effective, reliable, and environmentally friendly all in one package. We look forward to increasing the number of electric yard trucks in our fleet."
