made easy.

Daimler Truck AG offers extensive charging infrastructure solutions.

Making the business case for mobility: companies with vehicles that are mainly used in urban environments “can no longer ignore issues of sustainability, noise pollution and efficiency”, says Evelyn Eberwein, Product manager for the eEconic. Electromobility provides the answers. Daimler Truck AG, in partnership with Siemens Smart Infrastructure, ENGIE and the EVBox Group, has been running a holistic ecosystem centred around charging infrastructure since 2021. The purpose of this is to enable companies to make a smooth transition and answer all their questions.

As individual as your fleet.

Urban transport is one of the areas where large CO2 savings can already be achieved today. But modernising vehicle fleets poses certain challenges for fleet operators. When adding eTrucks to an existing fleet, there is some uncertainty about selection criteria, charging infrastructure and operation.

With the eEconic and the charging infrastructure for eTrucks we provide the answers to questions about sustainability, noise pollution and efficiency in urban traffic.

The all-electric eEcononic was developed as an efficient solution for collecting recyclable waste for use by municipal authorities. Operators seeking to upgrade their fleet with the eEconic must answer one important question: how can existing infrastructure, which has mostly been designed for combustion engines, be adapted? This is where Daimler Truck’s additional charging infrastructure comes into play.

Together into the future.

Structural measures during fleet modernisation is just one of the many topics covered by our full service offer. Daimler Truck AG's concept makes it possible to offer tailor-made charging solutions for eTrucks. Competent experts answer all questions on the way to the smooth and seamless integration of eTrucks into existing fleets. This also includes the provision of the necessary infrastructure.

Therefore, Daimler Truck AG delivers much more than just a vehicle. Fleetboard’s integrated charging management system provides the perfect connection between eTruck and charging infrastructure to enable optimal truck charging. A major plus: customers always have someone to turn to if problems arise during the process, whether to do with the vehicle or the software.

Here for you together.

To be able to offer such a holistic approach to fleet electrification, Daimler Truck AG relies on strategic partnerships with Siemens Smart Infrastructure, ENGIE and the EVBox Group. “Owing to the complexity of the processes, it is crucial to set the right course ahead of time for optimal use of all-electric vehicles in the fleet,” emphasises Andreas von Wallfeld, Head of Daimler Truck Overseas.

Partners with market experience therefore support us right from the outset with their energy supply expertise and charging infrastructure solutions. Initially, during the consultation phase, a realistic usage profile for any customer’s individual applications is developed. One of our renowned partners will then carry out an analysis of the respective depot or company premises, construction of suitable infrastructure, as well as service and maintenance.

Using the individual charging concept, i.e. the number of charging stations, trip types, possible charging periods and the required charging services, they will check, for example, whether a company's existing grid capacity is sufficient for converting to e-mobility. The grid connection must meet the maximum power requirement from lighting, IT hardware, air conditioning and production systems for example. As the existing power requirement is increased by the energy requirement of the eTruck charging stations, the local distribution system operator must check whether the connection to the distribution grid can cover this additional power requirement. If not, structural measures may be necessary for which both Daimler Truck AG and its partners as well as the local distribution system operator provide support.

sooner rather than later.

It takes quite some time to electrify a depot. The period from initial consultation to delivery of an eTruck can vary and may last up to twelve months. Depending on the circumstances and requirements, the planning and complete construction of a charging infrastructure, including the expansion of the grid connection, can generally take from three to twenty-four months. It is therefore advisable to involve the local grid operator in the planning of the charging infrastructure early on.

The optimum charging concept for the eEconic.

That said, as individual charging concepts may be, one general thing can be said: the eEconic is designed for use by municipal authorities. Waste management offers ideal conditions for operating the vehicle in combination with a Daimler Truck AG charging solution. On the mostly short routes within towns and cities, almost all of the typical waste collection routes in single-shift operation can be covered with just a single battery charge of the eEconic.

At the same time, eEconic customers remain flexible: if operations require shorter charging times, charging with a higher output of up to 150 kW is also possible. Infrastructure may need to be expanded for this purpose. Working together with its partners and the appropriate software and hardware solutions, Daimler Truck AG provides support all around, from connection to the power grid to charging planning and charging management.
