Anheuser-Busch Reserves 40 Of Tesla's Self-Driving Electric Semi Trucks

By Brian Spaen

We’ve seen a number of craft beer companies implement a more eco-friendly process in creating their beverage. Now, a major player in the beer industry, Anheuser-Busch, is doing the same with their distribution. The Budweiser company has ordered 40 Tesla Semis to cut down on fuel costs and to reduce carbon emissions.

Anheuser-Busch has set a goal to reduce their carbon footprint by 30 percent by 2025, and one of the ways they’ll tackle it is through beer delivery. An order of 40 semi-trucks is one of the biggest Tesla has received; in the same day, Sysco currently holds the record with 10 more semis.

“At Anheuser-Busch, we are constantly seeking new ways to make our supply chain more sustainable, efficient, and innovative,” James Sembrot, Senior Director of Logistics Strategy, said in a press release. “This investment in Tesla semi-trucks helps us achieve these goals while improving road safety and lowering our environmental impact.”
