Einride partners with Dubai RTA to bring autonomous, sustainable road freight to the UAE

2018.12.18

Dubai, the United Arab Emirates, November 28, 2018

Einride and Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding regarding the sustainable transformation of Dubai’s road freight transportation system.

The Dubai Autonomous Transportation Strategy aims to transform 25% of the total transportation trips in Dubai to be smart and driverless by 2030. The partnership with Einride is an important step towards reaching that goal.

As part of the Dubai Future Accelerators program, Einride has successfully worked with the RTA to plan the sustainable transformation of the logistics sector in Dubai, identifying possible installations of Einride’s solution.

“Road freight transport is responsible for a substantial part of global CO2 and NOx emissions, contributing to global warming and impacting air quality. By substituting diesel with electricity, we reduce CO2 emissions very significantly and eliminates NOx emissions altogether. We are happy and grateful that Dubai’s RTA has chosen to be part of this sustainable transformation,” said Robert Falck, CEO, and founder of Einride.

The agreement is one of the outcomes of Einrides’s participation in Dubai Future Accelerators, a Dubai-based program, which facilitates partnerships between entrepreneurs, private sector organizations and government entities, using the city of Dubai as a living testbed to co-create solutions to global and local challenges. Einride participation was aimed at proposing new and sustainable approaches to road freight transportation.

“Dubai Future Accelerator program aims to connect innovative companies and start-ups with the government of Dubai to co-create solutions and address industry-specific challenges in hopes of creating more efficient and dynamic processes; ultimately resulting in a positive impact for society. The collaboration between RTA and Einride will contribute to the Dubai Autonomous Transportation Strategy, as well as, a testament to the program’s mission and objectives” said Saeed Al Falasi, Executive Director of Future Platforms at Dubai Future Foundation.

Einride is the first service provider to initiate a partnership with RTA regarding autonomous road freight transportation. The parties aim to positively impact the logistics sector in Dubai and will work together to introduce safe, cost-efficient and sustainable alternatives to conventional solutions.
