Today, Swedish transport technology company Einride announced its partnership with Oatly to help the brand transition to all-electric vehicles along its commercial transport route—making it one of the first companies in the world to do so. The partnership will commence in the later part of 2020, with Einride supporting the transport of Oatly’s finished oat-based products in electric trucks from its production facilities in Sweden, to intermediate destinations within the market. “Sustainability is at the core of everything we do and we are committed to driving change across the food industry through embracing new sustainable solutions in every area of our business,” Simon Broadbent, Supply Chain Director at Oatly, said. “Electrical transportation is a key part of our supply chain strategy globally and on these routes, we will be reducing our carbon footprint by 87 percent. So naturally we are super-excited at exploring this new opportunity with Einride.”
