Volta Trucks selected for parcel delivery serviceBring and Posten, the Nordic region’s leading distributor of parcels, cargo, and mail, has chosen Volta Trucks for an exclusive trial of its forthcoming Volta Zero.

The Volta Zero is the world’s first purpose-built full-electric large freight distribution vehicle, and the trial 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.

Per Öhagen, executive vice president of e-commerce and logistics at Bring, said: “Bring wants to be a world leader in making transport climate friendly. 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 Volta Trucks in Scandinavia sends a clear message of our sustainability intent, and we look forward to a good collaboration to develop the emission-free transport of the future.”

Rob Fowler, Volta Trucks chief executive Officer, said: “With Swedish and Norwegian founders, Volta Trucks was created with strong Nordic roots. Our 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.

“I am delighted to be exclusively partnering with Bring to test the forthcoming Volta Zero in the important Nordic markets.

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.

“I look forward to receiving feedback from Bring’s drivers of the unique driving environment and the vehicle’s performance.”
