UPS has ordered 10,000 electric delivery trucks from electric vehicle maker Arrival, in what it calls a move to accelerate fleet electrification.

It’s the shipping giant’s largest-ever single order of electric vehicles

UPS also announced it is partnering with Waymo to test autonomous vehicle package pickups in the Phoenix area. UPS said Waymo’s Chrysler Pacific minivans will shuttle packages from UPS Stores to a UPS sorting facility, with a driver on board to monitor operations.

RTFA for even more purchases, tests, investments. Looking forward to that brown truck rolling into our driveway – sooner or later – under electric power.
