Sweden's largest online pharmacy will employ three lorries from the Swedish electric and autonomous trucking developers for shipment carriage from a warehouse in Morgongåva to a parcel terminal in Stockholm.
Einride's lorries will be employed all day round, thus replacing some 40-50 trucks that served the route in question.
Apotea sends over one million parcels each month.
The new solution is expected to start running in April 2022, saving around 4,000t of CO2 emissions in three years.
"It is really cool to be part of the first stage of electrifying heavy transport and to take this step into the future when it comes to developing sustainable transportation for e-commerce. Our goal is to make our deliveries emission-free so that people can shop with us without destroying the environment," Pär Svärdson, CEO, Apotea, commented.
