Mercedes-Benz Trucks and Tevex Logistics have signed a letter of intent based on the order of 50 eActros LongHaul e-trucks (here’s our post on the presentation of the new truck model at IAA 2022). Tevex Logistics is the logistics subsidiary of the Tönnies Group and intends to use the eActros LongHaul battery-powered long-distance truck for the delivery of foodstuffs in the future. The newest eActros with a range of around 500 km is scheduled to go into series production in 2024.

Tönnies from Rheda-Wiedenbrück (East Westphalia) has bundled the sustainability goals in the “t30” agenda. By 2030 the group aims to become one of Europe’s most sustainable food producers. To this end, the family-owned company has defined measurable and specific targets for the coming years – including the reduction of CO2 emissions in logistics per trip.
Clemens Tönnies, Managing Partner, declared: “We aim to halve our CO2 emissions from road transport by 2030. This is an important part of our sustainability agenda ‘t30’.”
Stina Fagerman, Head of Marketing, Sales and Services at Mercedes-Benz Trucks, added: “Tevex is a long-standing partner of Mercedes-Benz Trucks with a great innovative spirit. We are delighted that the logistics company is planning to rely on the eActros LongHaul for particularly demanding, temperature-controlled food transport.”
