Ruan Transportation Management Systems has reserved five Tesla Semis, according to a release from the Iowa-based company.
“These new trucks stand to revolutionize interstate transport and change the way we do business,” said James Cade, Vice President of Fleet Services. “Ruan has always been a leader in efficient transport and logistics, so it makes perfect sense to explore what these trucks could do for us and our customers.”
Ruan said it also plans to work with Tesla to test vehicle prototypes in California before they are delivered. The press release says Ruan and Tesla have been in frequent communication throughout the development process, with Tesla inviting Ruan representatives to take part in numerous on-site meetings and discussions in the six months prior to the November unveiling of the truck.
“We have many questions as the trucks continue to be developed,” Cade said. “But we are excited for the potential they hold and are working directly with Tesla to get the answers we need before putting this technology to use.”
