Zero Emissions: The Future of Transportation

Our goal is to operate a 100% zero-emission fleet that services our customers while being a steward to the environment. We're testing every zero-emission class 8 tractor on the market, and have identified the precise needs of our operations down to the last mile and turn-around minute.


There are many benefits to using zero-emission (ZE) vehicles over diesel and natural gas beyond emissions.

  • More economical operating cost per mile
  • ZERO Greenhouse Gas Emissions
  • No noise pollution
  • No idling
  • Substantial increase of torque
  • A domestic and secure energy source
  • Renewable and non-depleting
  • Can be made from a wide variety of resources
  • Fueling infrastructure
  • State and Federal Support Available

Battery Electric


Total Transportation Services has been testing battery-electric trucks since 2015. The most recent is the Nikola Tre BEV (pictured). View a video of it in operation.

Hydrogen Fuel Cell


What's good for the environment is good for business, from improved fuel costs and operational needs - hydrogen fuels are the future of transportation.

Operational Consciderations

Drive Cycle

Vehicle Speed Against Time (How we use the trucks)

  • Power to move loads efficiently

  • Up Grades

  • Container Weight

Duty Cycle

How much we will use the vehicles

  • Dependability / Reliability

  • Fueling infrastructure availability

  • Distance - how far can I operate from fuel source

  • Number of trips performed before fueling required

Weekly Operation

Ports of LA & LB

  • 4 - Day of two 10 Hour Shifts (Monday through Thursday)

  • 2 - Days of one 8 -10 Hours Shift (Friday and Saturday)

Operational Needs

  • Class 8 Zero Emission Trucks

  • Truck must operate 8 to 9 hours per shift

  • Power to transport 36 to 39K loads

  • Able to travel 6% Grade at minimal 30 to 35 MPH

  • Minimal charging time (2 to 3 hours max)

  • Available infrastructure for charging

  • Truck Repair (Parts & knowledge)

Battery Electric

Nikola Motors

The Nikola Tre BEV (Battery Electric Vehicle) is an ultra powerful and reliable battery electric vehicle that is state of the art inside and out, and a driver favorite. Check out the video that shows a day with Tre. Learn more from Nikola

  • Range: Up to 350 miles
  • Battery pack: 753 kWh

Testing Battery Electric Trucks




US Hybrid

Since 2015, we rigorously test every available battery electric class 8 truck on the market to meet operational requirements and ensure our trucks deliver reliable service to beneficial cargo owners.

The Hydrogen Solution

We've Crunched the Numbers

What's good for the environment is good for business. From improved fuel cost to operational needs, hydrogen fuels are the future of transportation.

Drayage Operations

Hydrogen provides a dependable Class 8 Truck that can support our operation 20 Hours per day, 6 days per week. Hydrogen has the power to move loads efficiently from high grades to heavy containers.

Easy Fueling

We use port-located hydrogen fueling stations and on-site self-contained hydrogen fueling stations.  Conveniently located these meet the needs of our fleet operation.

How Hydrogen Works

The hydrogen fuel cell directly converts the chemical energy in hydrogen to electricity, with pure water and potentially useful heat as the only byproducts.

Hydrogen-powered fuel cells are pollution-free and have over twice the efficiency of traditional combustion technologies.

  • An electrochemical engine that converts hydrogen fuel and oxygen into electrical energy
  • Twice as efficient as gasoline internal combustion engine
  • A battery that runs on hydrogen fuel
  • No emissions (exhaust = H2O)
  • The endgame for the transportation industry
