DB Schenker opens first low-carbon distribution terminal in Norway

Global logistics service provider DB Schenker is opening its first low-carbon city distribution centre in Oslo, the new Oslo City Hub.

The centrally-located new terminal will reduce CO2 emissions of city goods distribution by 80%, using electric cars and e-bikes.

Oslo City Hub is part of Electric City, the Oslo district’s focus on activities associated with its status as European Green Capital 2019.

DB Schenker is aiming to achieve zero emissions in all city distribution in Norway by the end of 2020. The Oslo City Hub project is the first blueprint of how to achieve this.

Oslo City Hub will be located at Filipstadkaia in the centre of Oslo. The building is being constructed from containers and is organised for effective goods handling. The building will cover 457 m2. All goods will be delivered by electric trucks and e-bikes.

DB Schenker is a member of the EV100 initiative and aims to  replace diesel drivetrains by electric ones in collection and distribution transport by 2030.
