Volvo has just announced a new electric vehicle concept built to tow loads around ports all on their lonesome, so much so it hasn’t even bothered with a cabin.

Vera is an autonomous vehicle that forms part of a larger system. It has the potential to optimise transport in highly-repetitive, short distance flows with large volumes of goods, such as ports, factory areas and logistical mega centres, where it offers better delivery precision and flexibility. The sophisticated technology enables round-the-clock operations, while the electric drivelines means a significant reduction in CO2 emissions and noise levels. A cloud-based service connects each vehicle to a transport control centre, which continuously monitors and optimises the logistics flow. In the near future, Vera will be further developed by Volvo Trucks together with selected customers in prioritised applications.
