Three two-axle battery-electric eActros 300 have been handed over to logistics service provider DSV for distribution operations.

The e-trucks with dry freight bodies are used to supply 15 branches of the “dm” drugstore company in the Bonn city area.

The batteries of the trucks are charged at the DSV depot at the end of each day.

“DSV is a global transport and logistics company and Mercedes-Benz Trucks is a long-standing mobility partner,” said Ronald Ott, head of sales Mercedes-Benz Trucks Germany & Fuso, Daimler Truck AG.

“We are very pleased that DSV is also relying on a vehicle from our company in its deployment of alternative drives and that we are moving towards an emission-free future together.”

Peter Fog-Petersen, executive vice president, DSV Road DACH, added, “This innovative fleet expansion is another step towards responsible and sustainable logistics supply chains.

“This is a task that we are consistently pursuing as a company and with our long-standing partner dm. In Bonn, we are using the largest cohesive eActros fleet for deliveries to branches.”

The battery-electric Mercedes-Benz eActros for heavy-duty distribution operations has been rolling off the production line at the Wörth plant since 2021. The eActros’ batteries are available as either three (eActros 300) or four battery packs (eActros 400). Fitted with four battery packs, the eActros 400 has a range of up to 400km.
