DFDS, the largest sea freight and logistics company in northern Europe, and Volvo Trucks are starting a collaboration to electrify heavy transport. As a first step, DFDS will use a fully electric truck to deliver parts to Volvo Trucks' factory in Tuve. This initiative is an important milestone in being able to build a fossil-free supply chain for AB Volvo.
Volvo Trucks recently announced the start of sales for three new heavy-duty electric trucks. One of them is Volvo FM Electric, which DFDS will be one of the first to run in commercial traffic. After the summer, the truck will deliver parts to Volvo Trucks' factory in Tuve. To begin with, the truck will run a route of just over 120 kilometres per day.
