VERA, Volvo Trucks’ now famous electric autonomous tractor unit, will start work as part of an integrated solution to transport goods from a logistics centre to a port terminal in Gothenburg, Sweden, the result of a collaboration between Volvo Trucks and DFDS, the Danish based ferry company.

The idea is to use Vera in a real life application, enabling a connected system for a continuous flow of goods, from a DFDS logistics centre to a port terminal, for onward distribution.

Launched last year Vera is suited for short distances, transporting large volumes of goods with precision.
