Volta Trucks have just announced a cooperation with METRO Germany, a leading international food wholesaler that operates 102 wholesale stores and 11 delivery depots in Germany. The 16-ton all-electric Volta Zero will be initially deployed for METRO in North Rhine-Westphalia and will expand to Bavaria and Berlin when further vehicles join the fleet as METRO Germany plans to sustainably expand its delivery fleet.

The first 16-tonne Volta Zero will be deployed at the METRO depot in Neuss in August. “By Q4, five vehicles will be in use for METRO Germany,” said Frank Jäniche, Managing Director Sales at METRO Germany. “With a two-chamber refrigerated system, the Volta Zero trucks ensure strict cooling of the products and also offer a maneuverable and safe driving experience, especially in inner-city traffic. The large loading area makes it easier for us to deliver to our major customers in the food service industry.”
Essa Al-Saleh, Chief Executive Officer of Volta Trucks, commented: “I’m delighted that METRO Germany has selected Volta Trucks to implement the all-electric Volta Zero onto their urban delivery fleet and join us on the decarbonization journey. They will experience the many safety and environmental advantages that the zero-tailpipe emission Volta Zero will bring to their urban logistics, making our cities safer and more sustainable.”
