Daimler Trucks' first all-electric truck in small series production, is now conquering another European truck market. The delivery of three FUSO eCanter trucks to Camion Transport AG marks the beginning of a new chapter of ecological logistics in Switzerland. “I must say that being the first company in Switzerland to operate this pioneering vehicle makes us rather proud,” says Managing Director Josef Jäger. The vehicles will operate in the city centres of Basel, Lucerne and Geneva, and handle the locally emission-free distribution of retail goods. Urbanisation is a significant global trend. At the same time, the need for goods is growing steadily, particularly in dense city centres. Accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic, e-commerce business has exploded worldwide. “These products have to reach the people,” says Josef Jäger, Managing Director of Camion Transport AG. “That needs to happen fast, but it needs to be ecological, clean and quiet,” he explains, and he adds, “Our experience with the FUSO EcoHybrid has been very good and we are pleased that with the eCanter we are coming a step closer to our vision of sustainable city logistics. We want to deliver completely emission-free to urban centres by 2025.”
