Oslo City Hub for e-vans and e-bikes

The centrally-located new terminal will reduce CO2 emissions of city goods distribution by 80%, using electric cars and e-bikes. Oslo City Hub is part of Electric City, the Oslo district’s focus on activities associated with its status as European Green Capital 2019.

DB Schenker is aiming to achieve zero emissions in all city distribution in Norway by the end of 2020. The Oslo City Hub project is the first blueprint of how to achieve this.

“Digitisation and more sustainable solutions will be key competitive factors for future logistics," said Jochen Thewes, CEO of DB Schenker. “With the low-carbon Oslo City Hub, we are taking another step to reduce CO2 emissions in our day-to-day logistics business.”

Oslo City Hub will be located at Filipstadkaia in the center of Oslo. The building is being constructed from containers and is organised for effective goods handling. The building will cover 457 m2. All goods will be delivered by electric trucks and e-bikes.

As a member of the EV100 initiative, DB Schenker is aiming to replace all diesel drivetrains by electric ones in collection and distribution transport by 2030.

 

It is already involved with Swedish start-up Einride and its fully electric and autonomous truck in commercial operations. In Air and Ocean, DBS is partnering with its carriers bilaterally and in different cooperation platforms on sustainable transport solutions.
