Carlsberg Sweden's first electrified warehouse transports have started to roll. The investment is an important step on the way towards a fossil-free logistic chain and will provide an annual reduction of over 80 tons of carbon dioxide.
Carlsberg Sweden works continuously to reduce the carbon footprint in all parts of the business. The next step is now being taken by electrifying the transport between the brewery in Falkenberg and the external warehouse located at the E6, just under 10 km from the brewery. The investment is an important part of Carlsberg Sweden's endeavor towards a fossil-free logistics chain and will provide an annual reduction of 80 tonnes of carbon dioxide.
"It is very satisfying that we at Carlsberg together with Einride can advance the positions for electrification of heavy transports. Challenging ourselves to find new opportunities to change the business for the better is both inspiring and important," says Peter Hammarstedt, CEO Carlsberg Sweden.
Einride has provided a sustainable transportation solution that includes electric trucks, software and charging infrastructure. As a result, Carlsberg Sweden will be able to reduce its annual carbon footprint by 93% compared with previous diesel transports on the route.
