Mercedes-Benz Group AG Is Using the eActros to Electrify Its Logistics Between Bad Cannstatt and Sindelfingen

Mercedes-Benz Trucks

Mercedes-Benz Trucks specialists from Daimler Truck AG have successfully advised the Mercedes-Benz Group AG on the electrification of parts of its factory logistics. As part of the the “Sustainable Logistics Consulting” (SLC) range of services, launched by Daimler Truck AG at the end of 2023, Mercedes-Benz Trucks consultants provided assistance with the electrification of the route between the Bad Cannstatt engine plant and the Mercedes-Benz plant in Sindelfingen.

Here, as logistics partner, Große-Vehne is deploying two battery-electric eActros 300 semitrailer tractor units for transporting car engines. The two battery-electric Mercedes-Benz e-trucks each travel around 180 kilometers daily; until the planned charging infrastructure has been put in place, they are charged at a service station.


Electrification of logistics continues to pick up speed. Increasing numbers of companies, also from the industrial sector, intend to put carbon-neutral supply chains in place. We are pleased to be able to join Mercedes-Benz Group AG, as the first customer of our consulting services, in celebrating our success in reaching a milestone towards sustainable logistics.

—Andreas Scharff, Head of eMobility Sales and Dealer Network Development Mercedes-Benz Trucks at Daimler Truck AG

In the SLC range of consulting services, we focus on evaluating together with industrial companies the routes to be electrified in the area of inbound and outbound logistics and, together with the respective fleet operators, drawing up plans of the optimum routes with the corresponding charging points. On this basis, we then create customized charging solutions, both for the industrial companies and for the shipping companies.

—Sascha Strähle, Head of Sustainable Logistics Consulting (SLC), Mercedes-Benz Trucks at Daimler Truck AG

The design of the consulting program involves the following steps:

  • Configuration of a customer-specific transformation strategy
  • Analysis of the various logistics routes
  • Development of an electrification concept
  • Identification of products suitable for electrification
  • Planning of a suitable depot charging infrastructure
  • First assignments with e-trucks

The eActros 300 semitrailer tractor unit is based on the same technology as the rigid variant of the eActros 300. Three battery packs, each with 112 kWh of installed battery capacity, make it possible for the semitrailer tractor unit to achieve a range of up to 220 km with one battery charge. The eActros can be charged at up to 160 kW: At a standard DC rapid charging station, with 400 A charging current, the three battery packs need just over one hour be charged from 20 to 80%.
