Self-driving electric trucks are now part of everyday life at logistics company DB Schenker’s storage area in Jönköping, Sweden. A co-operation between Telia Company, Ericsson and Einride using 5G technology has made the launch of the trucks possible.
The Swedish transport company Einride’s T-pod – an all-electric, autonomous truck – is now being used at a major storage facility in Jönköping. A co-operation between Einride, Telia Company and Ericsson using 5G technology has made the commissioning of the trucks, possible.
5G technology, with high capacity and low latency, will be a key building block in the future transport system. Einride claims that, in the long run, their T-pod and autonomous transport system could replace more than 60 percent of today's transports with competitive and sustainable alternatives.
Einride has joined Telia Company’s 5G Partner Program which provides an innovation environment where the partners have opportunities to explore technical and business opportunities connected to 5G.
