Logistics giant DB Schenker is scaling up its efforts to shift its urban collect and delivery fleet completely to electric power by 2030.
DB Schenker deployed its first two electric trucks in 2017. since then, the e-fleet in Europe’s largest land transport network has grown to 79 vehicles.
With series-produced e-trucks from all major manufacturers in its groupage network, DB Schenker is able to make CO2-free general cargo deliveries from more than 60 locations across Europe. In 24 European cities, a total of more than 60 cargo bikes are used in urban transport.
Dr. Volker Wissing, Federal Minister of Digital and Transport: “To achieve our climate change targets, we urgently need to decarbonise the road haulage sector. Electric drivetrains can already deploy their inherent strength, especially in cities and on the last mile. They make an important contribution to sustainably reducing emissions from transport.”
