New trucks in the port of Hamburg

At the beginning of June, Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG (HHLA) launched the first electrically powered trucks at its own freight forwarder Container-Transport-Dienst (CTD). CTD will use the new e-trucks initially for container transfers in the port of Hamburg and carry out extensive tests. The company will then decide whether to procure more vehicles of this type.


The Volvo FH electric trucks have a range of 260 to 340 km when fully loaded; they have a 540 kWh battery storage system and a maximum charging capacity of 250 kWh. HHLA's rail subsidiary Metrans has also been using and testing e-trucks for container transport for two years. (ben)
