Environmentally friendly waste disposal with the eEconic.
Growing cities, global climate change, rising fuel prices: These are just a few of the challenges that municipal entrepreneurs are confronted with. This also applies to the Frankfurter Entsorgungs- und Service GmbH (FES), which has found an answer to the question of more efficiency and climate friendliness – the all-electric eEconic from Daimler Truck AG. After the first successful series of tests, Frankfurt is now one of the cities that is exclusively testing the Special Truck in waste collection.
Kick-off for deployment.
Due to fixed routes, short distances and stop-and-go traffic, the eEconic is perfect as a garbage collection vehicle in the city. Recuperation when braking recovers energy to charge the battery, which further improves the range and efficiency of the Special Truck. Dr Ralf Forcher, Head of Mercedes-Benz Special Trucks, is certain: “The eEconic is a milestone in the sustainable design of municipal logistics.”

Dirk Remmert, Managing Director of FES, also sees the cooperation as a major step on the way to the future of urban mobility: “As a municipal waste disposal company, we contribute to the common good of our city and its sustainable development. We see the eEconic as an important component of our strategy, particularly when it comes to use as a waste collection vehicle – because it can do its job quietly and CO2-neutrally.”

With the handover of the eEconic to the FES, the final test phase begins before the start of serial production, which is scheduled for summer 2022. During this time, the trained drivers put the all-electric waste collection vehicle through its paces and closely exchange views with the developers at Daimler Truck AG. Their valuable feedback is then used to fine-tune the eEconic, as the final potential discrepancies are eliminated. After the test phase, the eight eEconics that the Frankfurt waste disposal company has ordered, will be delivered.
