PostNL using FUSO eCanter all-electric trucks

PostNL is among the Netherlands-based companies that will be operating the new FUSO eCanter all-electric light-delivery trucks.

In a statement issued on Thursday (17 May), Daimler Group said: “Twelve FUSO eCanter, all-electric light-duty trucks by FUSO, a part of Daimler Trucks, will be operated by Dutch customers from now on: PostNL, the logisticians Albert Heijn B.V., Cornelissen Groep B.V. and Technische Unie B.V. as well as the biggest online marketplace in foodservice, Bidfood B.V., will operate twelve 7.5-tonne FUSO eCanter within their fleets.

“In Germany, Great Britain, Japan and in the US, the all-electric light-duty truck with an output of 129 kW and a payload up to four tonnes is already in use by costumers.

“With regard to the Netherlands, all vehicles will also be used for those duties that are accomplished by conventionally driven vehicles so far. The local reduction of noise and emission as well as the increasing sustainability of the fleets are the decisive factors for the companies to choose FUSO eCanter.”

The FUSO eCanter has a range of 100km and can be fast-charged in about an hour and a half.
