CVTA Tours Schneider National’s Electric Truck Charging Depot

Jul 18, 2023

CVTA’s Executive Director, Andrew Poliakoff recently had the opportunity to tour Schneider National’s new electric truck charging depot in Southern California. 

The El Monte facility can simultaneously charge 32 Class 8 EVs and serves as a specific use-case success story, supporting intermodal operations in a high-density infrastructure setting.

The fleet of responsive, whisper quiet Freighliner eCascadia trucks are popular with drivers at the location and feature numerous safety technologies like active break assist and lane departure warning to increase driver safety. 

Schneider and other CVTA members are working each day to advance safety and innovate with technology in the truck driver training community. Sincere thanks to Schneider for showcasing this technology and for their dedicated staff members that train and hire safety-focused drivers. 

Thank you to Schneider’s Sargis Danielyan for the informative ride along and to both Sargis and Norman Carrion for the instructive tour of the facilities.
