The Future of Supply Chain

Will electric “Semi’s” become the norm?  Right now my guess is the electrification of trucks will revolve around:
  • Battery technology – not up to big rig standards – and progressing slower than expected.Recall Tesla promised an electric Semi in 2019
  • The willingness of government to subsidize
  • The ability to augment other sources of energy – like Hydrogen.Yard jockeys (see my note previously on Firefly), drayage, trash trucks and the like can be effective under 100% battery power because of regenerative braking and their relatively slow speeds and short travel distances
