Heniff Transportation to Buy Zero Emission Trucks
Heniff Transportation Systems, LLC will employ a fleet-as-a-service agreement to initially acquire Nikola Tre BEV trucks.
The agreement between Heniff and Thompson Truck Centers, a member of the Nikola Corporation sales and service dealer network, calls for Thompson to provide the sales, service, maintenance, and energy infrastructure required to operate the Nikola Tre BEV trucks. Deliveries are expected to start during the first half of 2022.
Upon the successful initial deployment of 10 units into their bulk transport operation, Heniff and Thompson have agreed to pursue the placement of an additional 90 trucks into Heniff's fleet.
"After visiting with Nikola's leadership team, touring the new Coolidge, Arizona manufacturing facility, and taking a test ride in the Nikola Tre BEV, we were impressed by the power, performance, engineering, and quality of the truck," said Bob Heniff, CEO of Heniff Transportation in a statement. "We see this partnership with Nikola and Thompson as a means to accelerate our strategy for electrification of our fleet and as a positive benefit for our customers, communities, employees and stakeholders."
Heniff is an integrated freight network company that conducts liquid bulk transportation, rail transloading, tank cleaning, and related maintenance at nearly 100 locations.
