DB Schenker Achieves 100% Electric City Logistics in Oslo with New Volvo FL Electric Truck

DB Schenker has reportedly realized their goal of zero direct emissions in all Oslo city distribution by integrating the new Volvo FL Electric truck into its sustainable Oslo City Hub.

The vehicle was unveiled by Norway’s Prime Minister Erna Solberg, who thanked DB Schenker for its efforts towards greener transport solutions. The launch is supported by state-owned energy agency Enova. It is Norway’s first series-produced 16-ton truck with an electric drive and will enable DB Schenker to operate sustainable logistics in Oslo and beyond.

At the unveiling of the new truck in Oslo, Prime Minister Erna Solberg stated: “We rely on ambitious and innovative players like DB Schenker to take on new green technology. I would like to commend you for an innovative approach that goes beyond the use of electric trucks. With Enova support and significant investments in electric vehicles, and a centrally located logistics terminal, you are showing the way.”

Jochen Thewes, DB Schenker’s Chief Executive Officer added: “We at DB Schenker are fully committed to continuously reducing our ecological footprint. We are determined to offer our customers greener and cleaner logistic solutions to support them in their sustainability goals. With the new Volvo FL Electric truck and with the support of Enova at our Oslo City Hub, we are now able to prove that emission-free operations are feasible in urban transport. We are proud to deliver best-in-class solutions to protect our environment and to contribute to the greater ambition of a climate-neutral society.”

In total, DB Schenker has ordered eleven electrical trucks for city logistics in Oslo, which will replace diesel-powered trucks. Symbolically, the first of three Volvo FL Electric trucks features a label saying “100% electric in Oslo”.
