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.
