DFDS orders 100 electrical Volvo trucks for logistics network

Order of 100 Volvo FM Electric trucks is Europe’s largest heavy-duty electric truck order to date and the new electric trucks will be deployed throughout DFDS’ European logistics network during 2022 and 2023.

The order of electric trucks marks the beginning of a transition to a sustainable logistics supply chain offering in line with DFDS’ Climate Action Plan to reduce emissions from transport equipment.

"At DFDS, we're determined to become carbon neutral and offer a sustainable supply chain for our customers across Europe and Turkey. Electrification is an important element in this journey. The electrical trucks will be deployed in 2022 and 2023 to replace conventional trucks", says Niklas Andersson, Executive Vice President and Head of DFDS’ Logistics Division.

The heavy-duty Volvo FM Electric truck can carry a maximum weight of 44 tons (Gross Combination Weight). The new electric fleet will replace conventional trucks during 2022 and 2023. The electric trucks can drive up to 300 km when fully charged and will be used for both short and long trips in DFDS’ supply chain solutions.

The order includes eco-driving training by Volvo to ensure a competitive transition to the new technology.
