Reducing transportation emissions
Einride, Telia and DB Schenker, Sweden
Transportation powered by fossil fuels is a major contributor to global emissions, as well as a safety hazard on the road.
Ericsson teamed up with its partners to co-create a safer, more sustainable transport ecosystem using 5G to connect all-electric, automated vehicles.
Switching to electric vehicles can reduce the CO2 emissions of a logistics network by 90 percent, and commercial vehicles being driverless means less downtime, more reliability and more overall cost-effectiveness and healthier air quality and sustainable cities.
Note: Emissions reduction based on Swedish electricity mix.
