Milence, the joint venture between Daimler Truck, the TRATON GROUP and the Volvo Group, has just announced its third charging hub in Sweden. The hub will be located in in a newly built logistics centre in one of Sweden’s largest and most innovative logistics regions, Helsingborg. The hub is close to the E4 motorway, the main logistics route to Stockholm.

The strategic location of the charging hub not only improves accessibility for logistics operations but also underlines the region’s commitment to sustainable transport as a key node on the busy Malmö-Gothenburg route. As usual for Milence, the development of the charging hub will proceed in two phases.

Milence’s new truck charging hub to be developed in two stages

In the first, four charging bays equipped with high-performance Combined Charging System (CCS) chargers, each capable of delivering up to 400 kW of power. Later on, the hub will be expanded to 11 charging bays. Besides the CCS chargers, Milence plans to install Megawatt Charging System (MCS) chargers at the hub in Åstorp as soon as the technology becomes available for faster and even more reliable charging.

With the launch of our third Swedish charging hub in Åstorp, we are on the move, and I am delighted to accelerate the expansion of our network in the Nordics”, stated Anja van Niersen, CEO at Milence. “We have ambitious plans to further expand our network to several key locations to ensure that all electric trucks have a reliable and accessible public network where they can charge.”
