The Daily Dash: Daimler’s product news, BMO’s earnings

Cummins to build medium-duty engines in Germany

The Daily Dash is a quick look at what is happening in the freight ecosystem. In today’s edition, we highlight a big announcement by Daimler, significant money raised by an insurtech startup and another encouraging sign for the future.

Building medium-duty engines

Cummins Inc. announced it will build a medium-duty engine plant within a Daimler Trucks Mannheim complex in Germany to localize medium-duty engines that comply with the Euro VII emissions. It is the first major product announcement since Daimler AG said Feb. 3 that it would split off trucks and buses into a publicly traded stand-alone company. Alan Adler has the details: Cummins will build medium-duty engines for Daimler Trucks

Startup raises $4.5 million

Koffie Labs, a New York City-based insurtech startup focusing on commercial motor vehicle insurance, has raised $4.5 million in two seed funding rounds led by Anthemis Group and Lerer Hippeau. Koffie Labs was born out of a simple fact about commercial vehicle insurance: It keeps getting more expensive for truckers, but it still isn’t profitable for insurers. John Paul Hampstead with more: Koffie Labs raises $4.5M to transform trucking carrier insurance

Lavalle Transportation buys shuttered Rush Trucking

After news that Rush Trucking had shuttered operations, a Lavalle Transportation employee confirmed to FreightWaves that the automotive parts hauler had been sold in December to rival carrier Lavalle. Clarissa Hawes with the story: Lavalle Transportation buys shuttered Rush Trucking

Another positive sign
