The renowned international logistics service provider, Duvenbeck, has embarked on a transformative journey towards sustainable logistics. In a momentous move, the company has signed a letter of intent with MAN Truck & Bus, solidifying their commitment to utilize 120 cutting-edge MAN eTrucks by 2026. Duvenbeck, based in Bocholt, will stand as one of the pioneering customers to receive the groundbreaking MAN electric truck, starting from 2024. These remarkable vehicles, including ultra semitrailer tractors with a low fifth-wheel height, boasting a three-meter interior height in the trailer, are extensively utilized in automotive logistics.Expressing delight at the trust placed by their longstanding partner, Duvenbeck, Friedrich Baumann, Executive Board Member for Sales and Customer Service at MAN Truck & Bus, emphasizes the profound impact of their Zero Emission Vehicles in reducing the carbon footprint and fostering climate-friendly logistics across the supply chain. The collaboration sets a remarkable precedent for shaping the revolution in freight transport, with the example of Volkswagen Group Logistics exemplifying the collective responsibility to drive change.The MAN eTrucks currently support a maximum charging capacity of 375 kW (CCS 2 charging standard). However, the future holds even greater possibilities as MAN is dedicated to embracing megawatt charging technology, enabling charging capacities of up to one megawatt. Powered by a silent yet potent permanently excited synchronous motor, delivering an impressive output of 330 kW, the eTrucks are equipped with a central motor-gearbox combination featuring four gears to efficiently transmit power to the drive axle.Christian Schweckhorst, CEO of Duvenbeck, expresses enthusiasm about the collaboration with MAN and Volkswagen, hailing it as a significant step towards further CO2 reductions. This partnership not only demonstrates Duvenbeck's commitment to innovation but also highlights the urgent need for a rapid expansion of public charging infrastructure to support sustainable logistics.Volkswagen Group Logistics warmly welcomes Duvenbeck's decision to integrate the new eTrucks into their various transport concepts for the Volkswagen Group. As an integral component of their CO2 emissions reduction strategy in land transport, these electric trucks play a pivotal role in the company's endeavor to achieve sustainable logistics. Simon Motter, Head of Volkswagen Group Logistics, emphasizes the importance of forging partnerships with innovative counterparts who share a vision for sustainable practices and embrace new technologies.In the pursuit of their goTOzero impact logistics strategy, aimed at achieving sustainable logistics, Volkswagen Group Logistics recognizes the significance of collaborative efforts to lead the way in embracing new technologies. The deployment of MAN eTrucks in Duvenbeck's transport operations aligns perfectly with Volkswagen's strategic plans to decarbonize logistics and contribute to a greener future.
