This unique truck is once again in the news when it is confirmed to be used for the transport of goods from a logistics center to a port terminal in Gothenburg (Sweden).
"Now we have the opportunity to deploy Vera in an ideal environment and further develop its potential for other similar operations", said Mikael Karlsson, Vice President of Autonomous Solutions at Volvo Trucks.
Vera, which is suitable for short distances and enables large volumes of goods to be transported with high precision, will be tested in collaboration with DFDS, a company that offers ferry and transport services in Europe and Turkey.
The objective of this project is to implement a connected system consisting of several Vera vehicles monitored by a control tower. In this way, a constant and continuous flow will be achieved that responds to the demands for greater efficiency, flexibility and sustainability.
“We want to be at the forefront of connected and autonomous transport. This collaboration will help us develop an efficient, flexible and sustainable long-term solution to receive autonomous vehicles that arrive at our doors, for the benefit of our customers, the environment and our business ”, he pointed Torben carlsen, CEO of DFDS.
