CFR Classic Reserves Five Tesla Semi Trucks

LOS ANGELES, Calif. – January 18, 2018 – Global freight forwarder CFR Classic LLC recently moved further toward an environmentally friendly car shipping fleet by reserving five new Tesla Motors Semi trucks. The units, to be operated under CFR’s California based Green Trucking LLC subsidiary, will haul new and used cars, but also ocean containers throughout California, Nevada, and Arizona.

CFR is widely considered the global leader in containerized shipping of used and new autos, with more than 3000 vehicles moved per month by ocean and rail containers.  The company is known to have pioneered the use of re-usable car racking solutions in ocean containers for car manufacturers and the global classic car shipping industry.

Headquartered in Paramount, California, with offices around the U.S. and Europe, CFR also handles commercial FCL and LCL freight, project cargo, and air shipments. Its subsidiary Green Trucking supports CFR’s operations in California, where the company runs three vehicle processing centers in the Los Angeles and Oakland areas.

CFR is also a key logistics vendor for Tesla, providing containerized shipping solutions for the car manufacturer since 2014, primarily to Europe and Asia-Pacific.

According to CFR, the Tesla Semis will substantially reduce fossil fuel requirements of CFR’s truck fleet, providing not only cost savings in the medium and long term, but also immediate reductions in the fleet’s emissions footprint.

“Our company supports Tesla’s mission of making electric vehicles economically viable, so it was the right decision to support both them and our own goals for going green by investing in Tesla’s products,” said Christoph Seitz, Co-Owner of CFR Classic.

CFR’s Green Trucking operation already owns a fleet of 20 Clean Diesel trucks and was one of the first carriers in California to embrace that technology when the Los Angeles ports tightened environmental restrictions in 2008. Seitz expects to eventually replace all trucks in the existing fleet with Tesla Semis.

Joey has spent his entire teen and adult life in cars. Joey's father owned a Jeep store, and Joey had his own used car lot that he ran himself from age 22 until I was 30. At 30 years old, Joey got "out of" the car business and joined CFR Rinkens. Joey started when there were only 9 people at CFR, but the company grew to over 150 employees during his time there. When Joey started, CFR Rinkens was shipping about 40 vehicles per week from Los Angeles. Joey established locations in Houston, Miami, and New York and within the first year, CFR went to shipping 150 cars per week. Joey started as a customer service rep and later moved up to sales manager, operations manager, and marketing manager. Joey then moved to Europe for two years and spent the entire time traveling through Europe meeting with clients. In 2022, Joey and his partners purchased CFR Classic from CFR Rinkens and he returned to California to watch over the operation more closely.
