Scania is collaborating with Axel Johnson, one of the largest trade and service companies in the Nordic region, to accelerate the transition to battery-electric and sustainable transport.
Scania is utilising its expertise in electric vehicle development, digitalization, and extensive data from its large truck fleet to support Axel Johnson’s transport companies, Dagab and Martin & Servera, to make green battery-electric transport a reality.
Mia Brunell Livfors, CEO of Axel Johnson, believes the electric transport of goods should become the new standard. She states, “Our transport flow is where we can make a big impact by reducing emissions. With Scania’s data and expertise, they provide us with information on how to organise the scale-up of electric transport responsibly and economically. To us, this is an investment that makes sense.”
To plan and organise an optimal transport flow can be complex. Hence, the shift to electrification is challenging without the right information at hand and needs to be practically and financially viable. Scania applies its models and analytic tools to Axel Johnson’s operations to examine how electrified transports can operate and be charged in the most economically viable manner. Scania’s data from more than 600,000 connected vehicles around the world enables optimised flows and predictability in several fleet and transport matters.
Scania’s Chief Digital Officer, Mikael Cato, is optimistic about the partnership and says, “At Scania, our purpose is to show the way for sustainable transport. To work with such major players as Axel Johnson, Axfood and Martin & Servera in electrification is reassuring in times when the responsibility to decrease the climate impact from society lies in the hands of the business sector. In this collaboration, we will make a big difference together.”
