UPS continues electric vehicle push with Gaussin 'shifters' test in London - Atlanta Business Chronicle

While company initiatives around the globe are stuck in neutral during the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak, UPS is charging forward on a piece of its green energy strategy.

United Parcel Service Inc. (NYSE: UPS) said it's testing the suitability and durability of Gaussin electric vehicles, known as "shifters," which have autonomous driving capability, to move semi-trailers and containers on the grounds of UPS’s advanced-technology London Hub.

Gaussin SA, a French engineering company, and UPS have been collaborating since 2018 to co-develop a competitive electric shifter vehicle. UPS says Gaussin electric vehicles have no tailpipe emissions and include "novel battery-swap technology," where discharged battery packs can immediately be replaced by fully charged ones.


Lunch is the best part of the day


The truth never changes.
What the hell are we looking at here?

Parallel to the poster the company distributed about the location to put a PAL label on the package.

They used a package that had a USPS label on it...not a ups pkg.

Too many martini lunches that day at the marble palace?
