DFDS now has a total order of 125 heavy electric trucks from Volvo Trucks

DFDS, Northern Europe's largest shipping and logistics company, has placed an additional order of 25 heavy electric trucks with Volvo Trucks. With the new order, DFDS’ total order is for 125 electric trucks.

Delivery is expected to start in the fourth quarter of 2022. DFDS will use the new trucks for transport in Europe.

The Volvo FM Electric truck can drive up to 500km on a work day and recharge quickly. It can be charged overnight and through high power fast charging on route.

“Green investments in the heavy transport industry are a prerequisite to reach the emissions reductions needed for DFDS, customers, and society. Our partnership with Volvo Trucks allows DFDS to invest further in green transport solutions, already in high demand among customers. We hope such investments increase the demand for green infrastructure solutions across Europe,” says Niklas Andersson, Executive Vice President and Head of Logistics Division at DFDS.

Volvo Trucks started serial production of electric trucks in 2019
