The Newest Addition to our Fleet

In mid-October we were happy to add this all-electric Ford F-150 Lighting to our fleet. You may spot it in the St. John’s area – our electric vehicles are identified with a green decal. Reducing our greenhouse gas emissions is just part of our commitment to ESG. Cahill strives to operate in a sustainable manner and reduce harm to the environment. This electric vehicle is just one step on our collective journey to net zero.
