One of the stars of the show was the Volvo Vera, a zero-emission level 4 autonomous tractor unit. Volvo Trucks UK and Ireland MD Robert Grozdanovski, explained that the cab-less truck, which has a top speed of 40kmph and a range of up to 300km, isn’t about to replace drivers. “It’s been designed to complement the industry, and not replace the current system,” he said.
Vera, which means ‘faith’ in Russian, will shortly enter trials with ferry operator DFDS in Gothenburg. Its journey from a logistics centre to the city’s APM Terminals port facility, will see it travelling on a public road.
