BEV truck cost of ownership, $30k Volt bill and the great sauce spill

On today’s episode Dooner and The Dude are talking about the true cost of ownership for battery electric trucks. While many OEMs have promised huge fuel savings, you may be surprised to see just how much early adopters are paying to charge up their trucks. 

Alan Adler, Detroit bureau chief at FreightWaves, discusses BEV truck cost of ownership concerns, Nikola getting a third CEO in two years and GE’s stake in Hyliion. 

It’s pastageddon on America’s highways as trucks spill hundreds of thousands of tomatoes and alfredo sauce across the asphalt. Did a Chevy Volt battery really cost a customer $30,000? Back The Truck Up’s Rooster and SuperTrucker share this week’s weirdest trucking stories. 

Adam Cunningham, partner and chief customer experience officer at Port X Logistics LLC, says in times of chaos, a positive experience is king. 

Thinking of joining the biz but not sure what the difference is between an agent and a broker? Annette Luyten, senior VP of domestic brokerage at Ascent, sets us straight.
