FedEx puts eActros through its paces

[ May 13, 2024   //   ]

FedEx Express has started a two-week pilot of a Mercedes-Benz all-electric eActros 300 tractor in the Netherlands. It is being used in place of a combustion engine tractor and trailer combination, to fulfil domestic linehaul operations from Eindhoven station.
The tractor will recharge onsite at the Eindhoven station during down time, using a 40kW temporary charging solution.

FedEx Express previously piloted the Mercedes-Benz Trucks eActros 300 as a rigid truck, using it in operations in Basel, Switzerland in 2023. FedEx Express has also added electric vehicles to parcel pickup and delivery operations in the UK, Amsterdam, Spain, and France.
