On June 13, Volvo Trucks informed that Volvo Trucks’ electric, connected and autonomous vehicle Vera will form part of an integrated solution to transport goods from a logistics centre to a port terminal in Gothenburg, Sweden. The assignment is a result of a new collaboration between Volvo Trucks and the ferry and logistics company, DFDS.
The purpose of the collaboration is to implement Vera in a real application, enabling a connected system for a continuous flow of goods, from a DFDS’ logistics centre to an APM Terminals port facility in Gothenburg, for distribution across the world.
Vera is suited for short distances, transporting large volumes of goods with high precision.
The aim is to implement a connected system consisting of several Vera vehicles monitored by a control tower. The purpose is to enable a seamless and constant flow responsive to demands on greater efficiency, flexibility and sustainability.

On June 6, Volvo Buses informed that it is now extending its range of electrified buses with an all-electric articulated bus for quiet and emission-free high-capacity operations – the Volvo 7900 Electric Articulated.
At the UITP Global Transport Summit, the worldwide public transport fair being held this year in Stockholm from 9-12 June, Volvo Buses announced the introduction this autumn of an all-electric articulated bus with space for up to 150 passengers. The new articulated bus is based on the prototypes that since June 2018 have been running in test operations on the high-frequency route 16 in Gothenburg, Sweden. The two concept buses have thus far run for 4,500 hours and covered more than 62,000 kilometres, with excellent uptime.
The batteries will be charged both via fast-charge stations at either end of the route, and via overnight charging at the depot using CCS. The Volvo 7900 Electric Articulated will be unveiled to the public at the Busworld exhibition in Brussels in October.
