Bring and Posten is a leading Nordic distributor of parcels, cargo, and mail. Volta Trucks has been chosen to participate in a trial of the company’s Volta Zero, the world’s first purpose-built full-electric large freight distribution vehicle, in which it will support Bring and Posten’s significant network of inner-city mail and parcel pick-up and drop-off locations.
With the full-electric, zero-emission truck specifically designed to operate in inner city environments, the Volta Zero will be extensively tested in the locations it was designed to excel in, providing real-world data and driver feedback to engineers in the vehicle development programme.
“Bring wants to be a world leader in making transport climate friendly” said Per Öhagen, Executive Vice President of E-commerce and Logistics at Bring. “By 2025, our goal is that all our vehicles and buildings will be emission neutral. To reach that goal, partnering with companies like Volta Trucks are crucial. To be the first pilot user of a Volta Truck in Scandinavia sends a clear message of our sustainability intent, and we look forward to a good collaboration to develop the emission-free trucks of the future.”
Rob Fowler, Chief Executive Officer of Volta Trucks, added that, with Swedish and Norwegian founders, Volta Trucks was created with strong Nordic roots and that the company’s mission is to create a purpose-built, full-electric large delivery vehicle that will help improve the safety of pedestrians and other road users and improve the air quality for all.
“Bring’s inner-city delivery vehicle requirements, with their extensive network of pick-up and drop-off locations, perfectly complements the design and performance of the Volta Zero with its 200kms range of full-electric, zero-emission operation” Mr Fowler said. “I look forward to receiving feedback from Bring’s drivers of the unique driving environment and the vehicle’s performance.”
