The world’s first self-driving truck on public roads — to be introduced in Sweden


DB Schenker and Einride have signed an agreement regarding the transport solution of tomorrow. Once given a permit from the Swedish Transport Agency, Einride will install the first autonomous vehicle– a self-driving, electric vehicle, without drivers cab which can be remotely controlled when needed – at DB Schenker in Jönköping. The vehicle will operate the distance between two DB Schenker locations, some of which is on a public road.

— Electric and autonomous trucks are two key future technologies that will disrupt the global transport and logistics market. We are happy that we can test a combination of these two future technologies in cooperation with Einride at such an early stage. This partnership is one part of our overall strategy to be a driver of innovative solutions and to deliver the best quality and service to our customers, says Ewald Kaiser, Member of the Board of Management Freight (COO) of DB Schenker

— The cooperation gives us the possibility to create a sustainable transport solution and develop both DB Schenker and Einride for the future. The rapid development within battery technology and AI enables a great reduction of emissions, increased cost-efficiency and increased traffic safety – a future we want to be part of, says Mats Grundius.

The agreement includes the installation of one pilot, but with the option of additional pilots globally within DB Schenker.

— Road transports are accountable for a big part of the emissions of CO2 and hazardous particles. We are very happy about the cooperation with DB Schenker who shows leadership and a will to drive development towards a sustainable transport system, says Robert Falck, CEO for Einride.
