Einride | September 15, 2022

Einride, a freight mobility technology company that provides digital, electric, and autonomous shipping, announced its expansion into Europe’s largest transportation market – Germany. In conjunction with the official launch, Einride has signed an impressive list of local partners including global appliance leader Electrolux.“Germany is in the driving seat of Europe; where it goes others follow suit,” said Robert Falck, Founder and CEO of Einride. “We have the opportunity and technology to bring the biggest change to the freight industry since the invention of the internal combustion engine and are ready to join forces with local partners to make transportation history.” Through its freight mobility platform Einride Saga, electric and autonomous fleets and charging and connectivity networks, Einride enables companies to move goods from A to B in a smart, green and cost-effective way.

Operations with Electrolux follow a successful partnership in Sweden and are expected to reduce CO2 emission by 92% compared to driving with diesel.

Now it’s time for German shippers to adopt a new generation of freight technology and future-proof their business.” -Robert Ziegler, General Manager Europe of Einride Einride will initially set up a regional office in Berlin. In addition to the German capital focus, logistical hubs in Hamburg and the Ruhr Area will also be built.
