Lidl Sweden to run electric trucks

Stockholm, Sweden: Lidl Sweden is introducing its first electric trucks in the autumn.

The trucks will handle deliveries on the grocer’s routes between its central warehouses and stores in Stockholm

Lidl has partnered with Swedish electric and self-driving vehicle company Einride to electrify and automate grocery deliveries in Sweden, set new standards to build climate neutral stores, and reduce emissions in the supply chain.

Carl Ceder, logistics manager, Lidl Sweden, told Tech HQ: “Our first goal on that journey is to be completely free from fossil fuels by 2025, and it’s in that context our collaboration with Einride will come to fruition. Together, our goal is to raise the bar for electrified transportation and to show that it’s now possible to implement a large-scale electrical fleet.

“Electrification, digitalization, and automization of transport are on the agenda, and I believe that if we are to reap the benefits of that technology, now is the time to start working with it.”
