Boston-based Diesel Direct uses custom-designed delivery trucks to provide on-site diesel refueling services to national, regional and local fleets, tanks and equipment throughout the United States.
“Because our goal is to provide our customers with a reliable and efficient solution that reduces driver downtime, it’s imperative that our equipment is of the highest quality,” said Dan Abrams, founder and president of Diesel Direct. “That’s why, when we decided to develop our new diesel electric hybrid fuel truck, we turned to Freightliner Trucks.”
Diesel Direct’s Freightliner Business Class M2 106 features the Eaton® Hybrid Electric Drivetrain System, a parallel hybrid system that enables the truck to operate using the diesel engine alone, or in combination with the hybrid electric motor.
“One of our biggest expenses is just to fuel our own trucks,” said Abrams. “With the new Freightliner truck, we expect to save at least 25 to 30 percent in fuel consumption.”
