DHL Freight introduces Mercedes-Benz eActros 300 heavy electric tractor-trailers in Germany

DHL Freight, headquartered in Bonn, has deployed two Mercedes-Benz eActros 300 trucks for delivery and distribution transport at the company’s Koblenz and Hagen sites. The truck at Hagen makes round trips to the Mercedes-Benz truck plant in Kassel, and the second truck makes deliveries to customers in the Koblenz area.

Each truck is powered by two 400 kW peak-output motors and has a range of approximately 220 km and a maximum weight of 19 metric tons. The introduction of the vehicles aligns with the DHL Group’s sustainability strategy to increase the proportion of EVs in its delivery fleet to 60%.

“Our fully electric eActros 300 tractor-trailers are specially designed for regional distribution transport and are already capable of performing a wide range of conventional truck operations. We are pleased that the eActros 300 is now also helping to make local road freight transport carbon-free in our own site delivery operations,” said Oliver Berger, Network Strategy and Sustainability Manager in Inbound Logistics at Mercedes-Benz Trucks.
