The US logistics giant is the newest on the list of Teslas prominent customers for its electric semi-truck. FedEx announced their pre-order of 20 Tesla Semis. They are designated for use in the freight division of the company.
The order sets another bench-mark in the growing list of Tesla Semi pre-orders. Recently, UPS ordered 125 of the trucks. PepsiCo and the eco-management company Bee’ah from the middle east also ordered 100 and 50 trucks, respectively. The brewing company Anheuser-Busch took 40 and the food company Sysco ordered another 50 models. Walmart ordered another 15, while the Canadian company Loblaws ordered 25. The DHL supply chain has also gone ahead and ordered 10 of the trucks.
At the beginning of the month, Tesla made headlines by announcing the first operation for the Semi: the transport of batteries to the 400 km distant Fremont factory.
