The pilot roadmap will be established using a planning study that assesses operational factors such as suitable routes, payload considerations, technical support, data sharing, and charging operations. The objective of the pilot phase is for DB Schenker to evaluate Range’s electric-powered trailers within its live fleet operations as well as analyze key metrics, such as trailer availability and fuel savings, and produce a report detailing a long-term electric trailer rollout strategy for the fleet.

"We are excited to partner with Range in this pilot program to explore the potential of electric-powered trailers in our trucking operations,” said George Henry, EVP Land Transport, Region Americas, DB Schenker. “Sustainability is a key focus for DB Schenker, and we are committed to evaluating innovative solutions that can help us reduce emissions and improve efficiency in our logistics operations.”
