German logistics group DB Schenker is now using Einride’s fully electric autonomous T-Pod truck in Jönköping, Sweden, to transport goods on a public road. Swedish authorities recently gave their approval for the endeavour.

With the begin of operations, both partners are calling the endeavour a world premiere as for the first time, a fully autonomous electric truck will travel in public between two nearby warehouses. Einride estimates that the T-Pod can reduce road freight operating costs by around 60 per cent in comparison to a diesel truck with a driver.

The approval from Swedish authorities is valid until the end of 2020 and stipulates that the T-Pod, which weighs 26 tons when fully loaded, may only travel at 5 kph, instead of its specified 85 kph. A 280 kWh battery on board should guarantee a range of 200 km.
