Hehe... ESB "Search found 67 matches: Tesla Semi"...

Why are food and beverage companies so interested in the Tesla Semi?:

Starts:
A number of companies around the world have placed pre-orders for the Tesla Semi, and a preponderance of those orders seem to be coming from purveyors of food and beverages. PepsiCo has ordered 100, Anheuser-Busch has ordered 40, restaurant supplier Sysco is taking 50, and Canadian grocery chain Loblaw’s wants 25. Why is this particular industry so interested in electric trucks? As a recent article in Popular Mechanics points out, there are several good reasons.

... and ends:
Anheuser-Busch presents a good case study in the advantages of going electric. The company has a fleet of 750 trucks hauling suds from its breweries to wholesalers. Every year, trucks transporting Anheuser-Busch products travel enough miles to circle the Earth 18,000 times, sucking up about $120 million worth of fuel. According to Tesla’s estimates, the 40 Semis Anheuser-Busch has ordered should save it about $8 million a year in fuel costs. The beer behemoth is exploring other possibilities as well - it is working with Nikola Motor Company, developer of a hydrogen fuel cell truck.
