Einride and Oatly Expand Partnership to Electrify Oatly's North American Fleet


The partnership will deploy Einride’s electric freight solutions including connected electric trucks, charging infrastructure and connectivity services within Oatly’s North American operations

June 9, 2022 - Swedish freight technology company Einride today announced the next phase of its partnership with Oatly Group AB. The partnership will expand Einride’s freight mobility solutions to Oatly’s North American ground fleet by deploying connected electric vehicles through Einride’s capacity as a service and software as a service offerings.

Einride’s mission is to create more sustainable solutions for movement, and this initiative will support Oatly’s goal to shift to 100% sustainable ground transport by 2029. Since 2020, Einride has successfully managed and operated electric trucks for Oatly in Sweden, making up the first and largest electric truck fleet in Europe. 

As part of the end-to-end freight mobility solutions Einride offers, Oatly will receive the connected electric trucks, charging infrastructure and connectivity services, all powered by Einride Saga, the proprietary operating system that manages the trucks and provides a new platform for more efficient and sustainable shipping operations. Oatly’s new U.S. fleet of five Einride connected electric trucks will save the company an estimated 400,000 kg of CO2 over the next year, as compared to diesel trucks on the same routes. This equates to an 87% reduction in carbon emissions on select routes with diesel trucks.

“It is important for our team to showcase a resilient business case for going electric while we are rebuilding the freight transport system from the ground up,” said Einride Founder and CEO, Robert Falck. “Since Einride’s inception, we have helped reduce customer CO2 emissions upwards of 90% compared to driving with diesel, and we’re proud that this partnership will support Oatly’s sustainability goals. The partnership with Oatly not only represents the push towards transforming the current shipping landscape, but it is proof that the technology and business model we offer is both resilient and is enabling true sustainable shipping.”

At launch, Einride will manage the fleet of five electric trucks at two of Oatly’s operating factories in the U.S., located in Ogden, UT and Millville, NJ. Multi-purpose routes will be scheduled routinely from Oatly plants to nearby recycling and packaging partners. Currently, Einride operates Oatly’s electric fleet in Sweden, which is composed of electric trucks that operate 24/7 live transports between Oatly production facilities and warehouse partners. The Europe fleet has been active since October 2020 and within the first month of operating in Sweden, the electric truck fleet saved Oatly over 10,500 kg of CO2 compared to diesel.

With heavy road freight contributing to 7% of all global CO2 and greenhouse gas emissions, Einride is deploying a sustainable, safe and efficient shipping network that will reduce the global carbon footprint. Einride’s commitment to electric power enables shippers to eliminate tailpipe emissions completely, keeping carbon emissions and local pollution to an absolute minimum. Einride’s connected electric trucks are assembled to set specifications throughout the U.S. and outfitted with special telematics hardware that informs Einride’s operating system, Saga, to get the most out of each electric shipment.
