An Einride vehicle will ferry goods between warehouses operated by Coca-Cola European Partners and Axfood, one of Sweden’s largest food retailers.

The warehouses are located in Jordbro outside Stockholm, some in fenced areas and others situated along public roads.

How Much Energy Is Required To Make Bottled Water?

 The energy required to produce bottled water is up to 2,000 times more than the energy required to produce tap water.
