New insight has been revealed regarding Tesla’s initial plans to build electric charging stations for its semi-truck operators.

According to Reuters, Tesla will collaborate with buyers Anheuser-Busch, Pepsi and UPS to oversee the construction of on-site charging terminals at each respective company. After that, the goal is to build a charging station network in strategic areas, particularly along major distribution points served.

In the beginning, each company intends to deliver loads along shorter routes within the Semis’ battery range.

No word yet on how each company plans to cover costs, as well as total building estimates and who would be responsible for what during the manufacturing process.

Both Pepsi and Anheuser-Busch have issued statements on its plans.

“What was important to us was to make a big investment in this cutting-edge technology and secure our place in line,” said James Sembrot, senior director of supply chain at Anheiser-Busch.

“We have a lot of in-house capability around energy and engineering … and certainly Tesla brings their expertise to the table on energy and charging,” said Mike O’Connell, senior director of supply chain or Frito-Lay Noth America, PepsiCo’s snack arm.

As of the time of this writing, Pepsi has reserved 100 Tesla semis, Anheiser Busch has pre-ordered 40 semis, and UPS has claimed 125, becoming early adapters shortly after the Tesla Semi’s unveiling in mid-Nov. 2017. Other companies in Tesla’s pre-order list include Walmart, J.B. Hunt, Meijer, DHL Supply Chain, and Canadian supermarket chain Loblaw.

The Tesla semi’s projected production date is in 2019.
