The Mercedes-Benz eActros is starting practical operation with four near-series-ready battery-powered eActros vehicles, just before the launch of series production on 7 October.

Three trucks recently commenced operation in a shuttle transport at Logistik Schmitt, which is based in the northern Black Forest, for the food logistics service provider Simon Loos in the Netherlands and at Tevex Logistics in North Rhine-Westphalia. Another eActros is being configured as a refuse collection vehicle for Remondis, a leading company for recycling, water management, and municipal and industrial services.

The electric trucks were built as part of the trial runs in the production facility.

The two eActros at Simon Loos and Tevex Logistics are equipped with refrigeration units from Frigoblock for temperature-controlled transport.
