Amazon order 100k EVs
Amazon will order 100,000 electric trucks from EV startup Rivian as part of a "Climate Pledge" laid out by CEO Jeff Bezos. Bezos wants Amazon (+0.22%) to get 80% of its energy from renewable sources by 2024.
While that is a really great initiative, that 100k number is interesting because it is massive relative to logistics counterparts.
UPS: 130k vehicle fleet (that includes tractors)
USPS: 230k vehicle fleet
Fedex: 84.7k vehicle fleet
