DHL’s Saloodo! rolls out first electric truck in the UAE



Logistics leader, DHL’s Saloodo!, the company’s global forwarding digital road freight platform, has announced that it will be the first logistics company to introduce the UAE’s first electric Mercedes-Benz truck. The fully electric 40-ton eActros 300 Tractor is suitable for heavy-duty distribution transport and compatible with all common semitrailers. The aim is to reduce all logistics-related emissions to net zero by 2050, including that of its transport subcontractors. Exclusively used by Saloodo!, the truck will contribute to slash carbon emissions in the UAE in line with DHL’s aim to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050. After shortlisting the options suitable for the region’s harsh climate, the Mercedes-Benz eActros 300 from Daimler Commercial Vehicles MENA (DCV MENA) and Emirates Motor Company-Commercial Vehicles (EMC CV) was chosen to be the first Saloodo! electric truck in the UAE and MEA region. Tobias Maier, CEO, Saloodo!, MEA said, “Our investment in the UAE’s first electric truck is a step to pioneer innovative solutions to help us achieve our sustainability goals and create unique solutions for our valued customers.”
