BLG LOGISTICS considers use of electric trucks

BREMEN/BERLIN. In April, the BLG Group started tests with a Volvo FH Electric, an electrically driven tractor unit, for inner-city truck traffic at Falkensee near Berlin. After the initial tests on practical viability were over, BLG Regional Manager Michael John stated: “We were able to reduce both CO2 emissions and urban traffic noise as a result of using electric trucks.” The use of electric drives for inner-city logistics would be the next step for the BLG Group, which, as part of its “Mission Climate”, has set itself the goal of becoming climate-neutral by 2030.
