Volvo Trucks places another valuable e-truck delivery. 20 Volvo Trucks FM Electric have reached transport and logistics company DFDS in Gothenburg, Sweden, as part of a total order for 125 electric trucks that DFDS has placed with Volvo.

More into details, some of the new electric fleet (14 vehicles, to be precise), charged using green electricity, will be used to transport goods to and from the Volvo Trucks assembly plant in Gothenburg. In addition, four of the 20 trucks delivered to DFDS use fossil-free steel.

“We firmly believe in leading by example, and to start using zero-exhaust emission trucks in our own inbound flow of goods is an important part of our strategy to create a world-class, sustainable transport system. I´m really proud to have DFDS as a partner on this journey,” said Roger Alm, President of Volvo Trucks.

“Replacing our conventional, diesel trucks with alternatives like the Volvo FM Electric truck will have a significant impact on our carbon emissions. But this effort requires much more than financial investment. It’s important to work with energy providers and industry leaders, like Volvo Trucks, to make our climate ambitions a reality. The transition requires the right infrastructure and cooperation across various areas of society. It cannot be achieved by working alone,” added Niklas Andersson, Executive Vice President and Head of Logistics Division at DFDS.
