Field trials for e-trucks in Switzerland
Two more battery-powered electric Mercedes-Benz trucks are now in operation in Switzerland to test the heavy-duty eActros in customer service: logistics provider Camion Transport is assessing an 18-t lorry and major distributor Migros is trying out a 25-t truck.
With the eActros, Migros delivers fresh produce from its hub in Zurich-Herdern to stores in Zurich’s city centre and suburbs. Camion Transport will deploy the electric truck to carry mainly general cargo between its locations in Schwarzenbach and St. Gallen.
For both customers, the eActros trucks travel about 150 km a day, which is well within their range of up to 200 km. (ben)
