Thanks to reduced noise levels, deliveries and garbage collection can now take place early in the morning, late in the evening or even at night, helping to improve transport logistics and reduce congestion during peak hours.

With the Volvo FL Electric and Volvo FE Electric we are able to meet both the strong environmental demands as well as the high commercial requirements of our customers,” says Jonas Odermalm, VP Product Line Electromobility.
