Medium-duty: Western Products launches new & improved website
Frito-Lay recently announced a new electric fleet that will serve the Dallas Fort Worth area, specifically Carrollton. The first pilot Ford eTransit truck has arrived just in time for Earth Day, with 40 arriving later this summer. The trucks will deliver locally and reduce Frito-Lay’s annual greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions as part of its broad commitment to create a positive value chain.
With the addition of the Ford eTransit trucks in Carrollton, Frito-Lay expects a reduction of approximately 390 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions annually through the implementation of this electrification project. Additionally, Frito-Lay is further decarbonizing its fleet through the nationwide use of Renewable Compressed Natural Gas and other new zero- and near-zero emission vehicles.
Frito-Lay has already achieved 100% renewable electricity for all of its U.S. plants, offices, and distribution centers. In addition, all Frito-Lay U.S. manufacturing sites use LED lighting with expected GHG emissions savings equivalent to 21,200 metric tons of CO2 annually.
