AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Hyliion Holdings Corp. (NYSE: HYLN) (“Hyliion”), a leader in electrified powertrain solutions for Class 8 semi-trucks, today announced that NFI has ordered 10 units backed by deposits to secure Hypertruck ERX™ production slots.
A leader in supply chain logistics with a fleet of over 4,500 trucks, NFI’s focus on sustainably serving communities across North America led to their interest in the Hypertruck ERX. The order comes after the Hypertruck Innovation Council member visited Hyliion’s headquarters for a Ride and Drive experience to evaluate the impact adding Hypertruck ERX units to their fleet could have in further driving their momentum in the zero-emissions goods movement.
“With an approach to sustainability from a strategic perspective, NFI’s commitment to tracking and reducing its greenhouse gas emissions makes them a strong Hypertruck Innovation Council member and a clear leader in the drive toward a zero-emission transportation industry. I’m thrilled they have selected the Hypertruck ERX as an avenue in reducing their carbon footprint as they continue to push forward with scalable sustainability initiatives,” said Thomas Healy, Founder and CEO of Hyliion.
“NFI has been providing logistics solutions for 90 years, and our commitment to sustainability initiatives will allow us to continue to serve our valued customers for decades to come. By investing in green technology like the Hypertruck ERX, we’re able to take another transformative step toward a zero-emissions freight industry, and I look forward to seeing the impact these Hypertruck ERX units will have in further reducing our carbon footprint,” said James O'Leary, Vice President of Assets at NFI.
