AI, Smart Cities
Einride, the Swedish autonomous trucking company, has successfully deployed its first cab-less, autonomous and fully electric truck for freight hauling in DB Schenker’s facility in Jönköping, Sweden. Named the “T-pod,” it will transport cargo between a warehouse and a terminal at the facility, as part of daily commercial operations.
The cargo capacity of T-pod is 15 standard pallets and it can handle cargo up to 26 tons. Being an electric truck, it has a battery capacity of 200 kWh and can haul freight for 124 miles on a full charge.
