Trucks as electric freight trolleys

In partnership with the Volvo Group’s Mack Trucks subsidiary, Siemens is planning to build an “eHighway” system near the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach to electrically power freight-hauling trucks in a fashion similar to trolleys or streetcars. A two-way, one-mile mile catenary system will be installed by Siemens with different battery-electric and hybrid Mack truck models participating.
