CNN: Germany Opening First Electric Highway for Trucks

Daniel Wood Blog, Business Insights, Trucking

“Trucks are guzzling ever more diesel, polluting towns and cities and fueling climate change. Germany thinks it may have found the answer by using overhead lines to power big rigs.

A system that allows trucks to draw electric power from overhead cables went into operation on 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) of the autobahn on Tuesday, according to the German government.

It’s the first such test on a public road in Germany.”
