On trial: first HGVs with e-refrigerating units
Germany: Schmitz Cargobull has augmented its portfolio with the addition of a new electrically operated refrigeration unit that is tailor made for swap bodies. The cooling system is 100% emission free and was specifically developed for distribution services.
One of the first project partners is the German retail alliance Edeka, which has just stared practical tests with an all-electric e-Actros fitted with the e-cooling unit and a swap body. The retail chain will primarily use the vehicle to distribute food.
In addition to Edeka, more Schmitz Cargobull customers are participating in the electromobility field trials. (ben)
