2016 Freightliner Cascadia Evolutions!

cascadia-evolutionWe are pleased to announce that we are now a fleet consisting of automatic power units! As of Feburary 8th, 2016 we are happy to say that we are the proud owner of three new automatic DT-12 Freightliner Cascadia Evolution power units!

With the emergence of these new automatic rigs, we are helping our fleet lower our overall fuel economy, tire wear and emissions. So far, our drivers are enjoying the new automatic gear box and are seeing the benefits of not having to shift gears. They are reporting back that they feel less-tired at the end of their full driving day and find it easier to focus on the road ahead of them.

All of us at Seafood Express (P.E.I.) Ltd. are happy to have some automatic power units in our fleet and definitely see them as a way of the future.
