Swedish freight company Einride, a pioneering provider of digital, electric and autonomous transport solutions, is expanding its fleet with 110 Scania electric trucks, to be delivered from the second half of 2022. Einride owns the fleet of Europe’s largest heavy-duty vehicles and the partnership with Scania will further strengthen their presence on the market.

The entire fleet of vehicles will be built according to Einride’s technical needs and will be supported by a unique operating system, called Saga. Developed directly by Einride, the system will ensure that electric transport is efficient and optimized. The fleet data generated by the Saga platform will be shared with Scania for the purpose of continuous improvement and development between companies. “We can’t wait to get started, this project is vital given our expansion plans in Europe. In fact, these 110 trucks are a key contribution to the extension of our fleet,” said Ellen Kugelberg, Chief Product Officer of Einride. “We will continue to join forces with renowned industry players such as Scania to drive innovation and product development in the global transportation industry,” concludes Kugelberg.

The terms of the agreement between Scania and Einride

The agreement with Einride not only represents the most important heavy vehicle order in Europe for Scania but also marks the beginning of a long-term partnership that will help to realize the ambitions of both companies regarding electrified heavy transport. “We share the same vision of decarbonising heavy transport. It has been gratifying to work with Einride to create new technological solutions and digital services that will innovate our industry in a sustainable way,” said Fredrik Allard, Head of E-Mobility, Scania CV AB.
The fleet of 110 electric Scania’s will be operational throughout Europe from the second half of 2022 and the first half of 2023.
