Advanced freight company Einride announced a partnership with global supply chain solution provider DP World to electrify inter-terminal container flows at Jebel Ali Port, the 10th busiest port in the world. This will be the largest deployment of electric, autonomous freight mobility in the Middle East. 

The expansion will be made possible through a fleet of 100 connected electric trucks, managed through Einride Saga, Einride’s digital operating system designed to analyze, optimize and maximize the efficiency of electric and autonomous road freight operations. I’ve included the release with more details below.

Einride’s largest initiative in the Middle East

Recently, Einride debuted its Smartcharger Station near the busy ports of LA and Long Beach, California, creating the largest operational charging site for electric heavy-duty freight in North America. Starting at the end of 2024, the partnership in the Middle East will quickly scale up to support approximately 1,600 container movements daily.

According to the partners, once at full operational capacity, the initiative will save up to 14,600 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) annually and 158 tonnes of nitrogen oxides (NOx) annually.  “Einride and DP World are driving a paradigm shift in the landscape of freight mobility in the Middle East. Our collaboration underscores a shared dedication to sustainability and innovation, merging Einride’s expertise in electrification and autonomous technology with DP World’s global logistics leadership,” said Robert Falck, CEO and Founder of Einride. “By reshaping container transportation in Jebel Ali Port, we aim to set a new standard for sustainable transport practices, significantly curbing CO2 emissions. This collaboration showcases the effectiveness of combining visionary ideals with decisive action, paving the way for a more resilient future.”
