Fortigo Freight Services first dedicated fleet in Canada to reserve Tesla Semi trucks

Fortigo Freight Services Inc. announced on Nov. 27 it has confirmed an order for Tesla’s Semi electric trucks, becoming the first dedicated fleet company in the country to invest in the new electric models. The announcement follows Tesla’s unveiling of its all-electric line the previous week to further innovate the transportation and trucking industry.

Fortigo Freight’s order confirmation of the Tesla Semi trucks highlights the company’s move towards adopting the latest innovative technology in the industry, as well as its commitment towards consistent improvement of their sustainability practices. The company will test the new Semi trucks to ensure optimized delivery performance, high-quality safety features and improved value for all its customers. Fortigo will also be rolling out a comprehensive leaseback program to help further support independent contractors, pending the success of the testing phase.

Fortigo remains a frontrunner in the use of technology in the industry and will continue to do so to best serve their customers. The company is using wireless/ RFID, web enablement and GPS tracking on all routes. Fortigo’s Transportation Management Software (TMS) and handheld application are both proprietary to the company, and specifically designed for dedicated transportation. Fortigo will be a leader in integrating their proprietary software technology into the cab of the Tesla truck.
