Orange EV expands electric yard truck rentals

Aug. 25, 2022
Rentals include the trucks, portable charging cabinets, and onsite training. The rentals are now available in 48 states.

Orange EV, the manufacturer of electric trucks, has expanded its yard truck rental program for electric spotter rental. The all-electric rentals are now available in 48 states, according to an Orange EV press release.

Orange EV’s turnkey solution includes onsite training, portable charging cabinets, and electric yard trucks chosen by more than 130 fleets. Site personnel receive onsite driver’s training to adapt to the yard trucks. Charger installation is straightforward since most sites already have the electrical capacity needed for Orange EV’s “matched pair” solution: portable charging cabinets and unique low-voltage trucks, all designed and manufactured by Orange EV.

“Orange EV is bringing to the rental market what we've long-since delivered to purchasers: a lower total cost, more reliable yard truck to replace diesels that continually plague operators with excessive maintenance, downtime, and expenses from costly diesel fuel, finicky emissions control systems, and more,” said Zack Ruderman, VP of sales and marketing at Orange EV. “Renting is also a great way to try before you buy to experience the Orange EV difference. Orange EV is committed to being the one-stop source for all electric yard truck needs—purchases, leases, and rentals.”

Founded in 2012, Orange EV now has more than 450 electric yard trucks—with more than 40 in its growing yard truck rental fleet—operating in trailer and container handling operations and meeting 24/7 duty cycles.
