Danfoss is embracing eco-friendly transportation by integrating nine fully electric Volvo trucks into its Danish logistics fleet, with emissions expected to drop significantly. The move aligns with Danfoss’s commitment to reducing scope 1 and 2 emissions and achieving carbon neutrality by 2030.
The vehicles will be deployed on fixed routes connecting various Danfoss sites across Denmark. With one of the trucks will operate continuously, 24 hours a day, five days a week, with minimal charging downtime. Danfoss aims to have these electric trucks fully operational by 2024.
Torben Christensen, Chief Sustainability Officer and Head of Global Services at Danfoss, commented on this strategic shift, stating, “The shift to electric vehicles is part of Danfoss’ commitment to become carbon neutral in scope 1 and 2 emissions by 2030. With these new Volvo e-trucks, we add extra speed to the decarbonisation of Danfoss’ operations. By transitioning our own fleet of transport vehicles to be fully electric, we want to demonstrate to our customers and other companies around the world that it’s challenging but not impossible to switch to electric transport vehicles and essential if you want to decarbonise your business.”
Joakim Nilsson, Business Development Manager of Zero Emission at Volvo, expressed his enthusiasm for this collaboration, stating, “This is a true testament that collaboration across the sectors is necessary but also opens for fantastic opportunities. Danfoss is a supplier of critical components in the electrical trucks and it’s fantastic to see they are walking the talk and transforming their whole fleet to electric. We are so proud to have Danfoss as our partner and that we together take these so crucial steps towards zero emissions and show the world what can be done if you set your mind to it.”
