German logistics company Dachser deployed a 7.5-ton electric truck in Munich starting this month. In the first phase, the Mitsubishi Fuso eCanter will start its service. Two vehicles of this type are expected to be added in early 2023.

Munich is the third German city along with Stuttgart and Freiburg, where Dachser is aiming for zero emissions in-city deliveries. Fuso eCanter will deliver to the Munich districts Altstadt-Lehel, Maxvorstadt and Schwabing-Freimann.

Once the two electric trucks are operational, Dachser said the zero emission delivery area will be expanded, creating a total exhaust-free zone of about 1.6 km on busy roads around Sendlinger Tor, Stachus, Odeonsplatz, Theresienstrasse and Maximilianstrasse.

“The proximity of the Dachser Munich branch to the city center is the optimal prerequisite for operating a fully electric truck. Delivery in a quiet, electric-powered 7.5 tonne truck contributes to the improvement of air quality and quality of life in the city,” said freight forwarder, Ingo Zimmermann.

With Berlin and Hamburg, Dachser already has two major cities in its emission-free city delivery service. The Dachser delivery concept is modular to meet applicable local requirements, in addition to trucks and electric carriers, bicycle deliveries are also made.

Previously, Dachser said that 6 months ago they used a Mercedes-Benz eActros 300 with a Spier box body in service in Stuttgart. The 19-ton truck replaces a prototype there that has been in practice since 2019.

Dachser will also soon be testing trucks with Hyundai’s hydrogen fuel cell technology. The 27-ton (total weight) vehicle is expected to be tested in Magdeburg from early 2023. The hydrogen specimen is one of 27 Hyundai Xcient vehicles to be exported to Germany for a pilot project.
