  • However, to maintain its stature, the entire industry — truck manufacturers, fleet managers, and other logistics companies — will have to transform to meet the demands of the future.
  • As a result, the trucking industry is in the early stages of a technological shift, with a particular focus on transitioning fleets from diesel to electric energy.

  • In The Electric Truck Report, Business Insider Intelligence will size the e-truck market and identify the core drivers that will lead to e-truck adoption.
  • The companies mentioned in this report are: Anheuser-Busch, ChargePoint, DHL, Daimler, Element Fleet Management, FedEx, PepsiCo, Tesla, UPS, Volkswagen, Workhorse Group, and Vion.

JUMP pulled its bikes from a number of markets in the last few months

  • Uber -owned JUMP pulled its bikes and scooters from a handful of markets over the last few months.
  • The latest city affected is San Diego, where JUMP’s bikes and scooters will no longer be available as of September 19, with the exception of two naval bases in the city.
  • The decision was in light of San Diego councilperson Barbara Bry calling for a moratorium on scooters in the city until it could figure out a fiscally responsible and thoughtful plan.
  • Earlier this week, JUMP removed its bikes from Providence following acts of vandalism and misuse.
  • This month, JUMP is also removing its bikes from Atlanta after operating in the city for just nine months.
  • Meanwhile, San Francisco seems to remain a solid market for JUMP bikes.
  • In July, Lyft had to pull its e-bikes from San Francisco following apparent battery fires.
