Zero emissions: DHL Freight and Volvo team up on electric trucks

DHL Freight, one of the leading road freight providers in Europe, and Volvo Trucks have partnered to speed up the introduction of heavy duty electric trucks to be used for regional transport in Europe. One more step towards zero emissions.


DHL Freight´s and Volvo Trucks´ combined effort marks another important step towards fossil free road transport solutions on longer distances. So far, the main use of electric trucks has been for shorter distances within cities and urban areas. Now DHL Freight and Volvo Trucks have initiated a project focusing on long distance heavy transports. The cooperation includes exclusive, worldwide first pilot tests of the fully electric Volvo FH truck. Its gross combination weights are up to 60 tons.
