Nikola’s Progressive Leap into Sustainable Trucking with IMC’s New Fleet

Arizona-based Nikola Corporation is steering the conversation around sustainable transportation this week following a series of key developments. From the grand reveal of Intermodal Market Company’s (IMC) new Nikola hydrogen fuel cell electric trucks to insightful discussions with Chairman Stephen Girsky and welcoming a new CFO, the company is fuelling up on positive press.

IMC Leads with Nikola’s Hydrogen-Fueled Future

IMC, a juggernaut in marine drayage logistics, spotlighted their commitment to clean energy by showcasing their 50-truck Nikola fleet. The roll-out began at IMC’s green-centric Compton facility opening, marking a strategic move celebrated since earlier this year. Already, the initial batch of 10 trucks has joined IMC’s ranks in Q4 of 2023, and the pattern of deliveries is set to continue all the way through 2024. Significant Demand for Eco-Friendly Transportation

IMC’s acquisition of Nikola’s state-of-the-art trucks is a response to the increasing demand for environmentally responsible freight solutions. The company’s drayage services, which play a pivotal role in moving shipping containers to their inland destinations, will now benefit from a cleaner fuel source, particularly across California, Arizona and Nevada.biagi bros Green and Yellow Trucks Nikola trucks
