With the commissioning of new e-trucks, DB Schenker is making further advances in climate-friendly city logistics. Four light trucks in total – all of them eCanter models made by Fuso – are in operation in Paris, Frankfurt and the Stuttgart metropolitan area. The eCanter is a 7.5-ton truck with range of at least 100 kilometers per battery charge – enough for extended tours of inner-city areas involving a number of stops.

 

The two trucks deployed in Paris, for example, make ten to twelve delivery stops on each tour. DB Schenker has also been using the Fuso-built vehicle in Berlin for transporting general cargo since last year. Moreover, the logistics service provider operates electric trucks in countries such as China and Sweden.
