Tesla acquires trucking companies to squeeze in more deliveries before Dec. 31

Tesla CEO Elon Musk tweeted Thursday that the electric automaker had "acquired trucking capacity," a move aimed to boost deliveries of its Model 3 vehicles before the federal tax credit begins to wind down December 31. The company hasn't posted any regulatory filings of an acquisition and Tesla has yet to respond to TechCrunch's inquiry on the matter.
