Ferronordic, a service and distribution company in the construction equipment and truck sector in Germany, announced that it has ordered its first electric truck.
The order includes 21 Renault D Z.E and D Wide Z.E Trucks as well as eleven Volvo FL and Volvo FE Electric, bringing the total to 32 electric trucks.
Ferronordic said the chassis for the truck will be delivered in the first quarter of 2022 and then fitted with the superstructure in Germany. The vehicle is then targeted to be used by the end of March 2022.
The vehicles ordered will be operated as medium-duty electric trucks for long-distance distribution and delivery traffic.
Ferronordic's CEO, Lars Corneliusson, said that promoting electromobility is an important part of his vision to become a leading sales and service company in its market.
“We are very pleased to work with Volvo and Renault Trucks to support the distribution of electric vehicles in Germany,” he explained.
To set up a network of electric truck repair shops, Ferronordic will also invest in mechanic training, charging stations and equipment for battery replacement.
“While we are investing in servicing electric trucks, we are also driving further utilization of our network in Germany and contributing to electrifying the transport industry,” said Lars Corneliusson.
