US delivery and logistics service provider FedEx has placed an order for 150 Blue Arc electric trucks from specialty manufacturer Shyft for its pickup and delivery fleet in the US.

The order follows pilot testing on last-mile delivery routes in Memphis, Tennessee. During the pilot, the Blue Arc truck operated extended 8-10 hour routes under challenging conditions, including temperatures of 95-105° F.

“As we work towards the phased electrification of our entire global pickup and delivery fleet by 2040, FedEx is eager to incorporate new and efficient electric vehicle models that meet the demands of our diverse network,” said Pat Donlon, VP of Global Vehicles, FedEx Express. “We look forward to bringing the Blue Arc into our growing portfolio of electric vehicles in service around the world.”
