Einride pushing for change in Almedalen

Each year, the island of Gotland and the city of Visby play host to the Almedalen week- the world’s largest democratic meeting place. Almedalen has been around since 1968 and is one of the most important annual events in Sweden, gathering policy makers, legislators, academia, and businesses from across the country to discuss the most pressing issues of our time.

Technology and how it can be used to build a more sustainable society has been high on the agenda for the last few years and remains a key topic in 2019. Einride has been present at Almedalen since the company was founded in 2016, when it unveiled the T-pod for the first time, outside the medieval walls of Visby. This year is no exception.
