be electrified. In the long term, the cooperation will be extended to other areas which can help to reduce the environmental impact of goods transport. In the first step, ICA Sweden and Volvo Trucks will work together to analyse parts of ICA Sweden’s transport flows in order to find possible routes for electric vehicles.
The cooperation covers ICA Sweden’s road transport within Sweden, both in city centres and on longer routes between cities. ICA Sweden and Volvo Trucks will work together to lay the foundations for electric transport solutions by making use of existing technologies and jointly testing new technologies.
ICA Sweden and Volvo Trucks have extensive experience of working to reduce the environmental impact of their businesses. ICA’s goal is for the group’s Swedish subsidiary to have a completely fossil-free road transport system by 2030 at the latest. Since 2019, Volvo Trucks has been manufacturing and selling fully electric trucks intended for deliveries to stores in cities, among other things.
