Together we electrify Sweden's truck transports!



REEL is a national initiative where leading Swedish actors have joined forces to accelerate the transition to electrified, emission-free heavy transport on our roads. Within the venture, we establish, run and evaluate around 70 different regional logistics flows in varying types of driving assignments. REEL brings together transport buyers, forwarders and distributors, haulage companies, terminal operators, charging point operators, electricity grid companies and suppliers of trucks, charging equipment and management systems. In addition, regions, national authorities and universities participate in this initiative.

REEL receives co-financing from the programme Fordonsstrategisk forskning och innovation (FFI) through Vinnova Energimyndigheten and Trafikverket.

Collected experiences from the project's actors

Take a look at REEL's compiled material, here we describe what the electrified freight transports within REEL are and how they are operated on a daily basis. In the report below, you will also find a compilation of the actors' views on how rules, business models, technology and the people in the system are affected and need to be developed.

Watch the films on why you should electrify your freight transport.

In these films, participants in the project share their experiences of driving food, general cargo, and building & construction transports with battery-electric trucks.
