Volta Trucks is about to open two new hubs in Duisburg, Germany, and Madrid, Spain. In accordance with the company’s strategy based on some valuable European cities, the hubs will enhance the TaaS (Truck-as-a-Service) vision shared by Volta Trucks. Indeed, the German and French HQs join similar already existing projects located in Paris and London.
Volta Trucks: the new hubs in Duisburg and Madrid
More into details, the new German Volta Trucks hub is in Duisburg, to the west of the Rhine-Ruhr region, an area that is striving to become the first climate-neutral industrial region in Europe. The new centre covers 3,000 square meters and incorporates eight service and maintenance bays and twelve external truck parking spaces along with a showroom, office space, conference rooms and the Volta Trucks Academy – the brand’s specialist training centre which will be used to educate drivers, sales teams, technicians, and fleet operators.
In Spain, the new Volta Trucks hub, located in the Madrid municipality of Coslada, is positioned to the east of the capital and within easy reach of the city centre. The site is also strategically positioned close to Mercamadrid, Spain’s main fresh food distribution area along with Madrid’s main freight terminal and Madrid–Barajas Airport. The state-of-the-art facility, designed to meet the unique needs of an electric commercial vehicle fleet, covers an area of around 2,500 square meters and will house eight truck parking spaces, four workshop bays providing maintenance and servicing along with a showroom, administration offices, a customer call centre, and the Volta Trucks Academy.
The Truck-as-a-Service strategy
Confirming the expansion of the Truck as a Service Hub network, Casper Norden, Chief Fleet Solutions Officer at Volta Trucks, said “The new Hub locations in Duisburg and Madrid are a critical element in delivering the Truck as Service (TaaS) solution. They join sites already established in Bonneuil-sur-Marne, south of Paris, and Tottenham, in London. TaaS supports our customers and partners switching to an electric fleet by providing a range of turnkey components in one package, delivering competitive total cost of ownership and vehicle uptime, de-risking and accelerating their switch to the all-electric Volta Zero”.
