Is an electric truck enough for the distribution of fast-moving goods?

The logistics provider HOPI is one of the few companies on the Czech market that can share its experience with electromobility in the segment of heavy freight transport. The Mercedes-Benz eActros 300 truck in a semi-trailer set weighing up to 40 tons has not only been tested, but it has been deployed on actual trips as part of the normal distribution of Mondelēz and Nestlé products. As part of its ESG policy, these global food giants can now positively report part of its transport without local greenhouse-gas emissions. This case study will show, for example, the operational benefits and pitfalls that must be taken into account by the food manufacturer and the logistics operator, how quickly or slowly three sets of batteries with a total capacity of 336 kWh are recharged, how does the return on investment work out, and whether a range of 240 kilometers is enough for a fully loaded trailer?
