Milence, the joint venture between Daimler Truck, TRATON GROUP, and Volvo Group, announces its third charging hub in Sweden, located in Åstorp. Committed to a fossil-free future for road transport, Milence is rolling out Europe’s first large-scale public electric charging network for heavy-duty vehicles and buses.

Strategically Placed for Optimal Accessibility 

The new charging hub is located in a newly built logistics centre in one of Sweden’s largest and most innovative logistics regions, Helsingborg. The hub is close to the E4 motorway, the main logistics route to Stockholm.

Åstorp is a municipality of the future where it is easy for companies to establish themselves and grow, and Milence is happy to contribute to that growth and have such a strong support here.

The strategic location of the charging hub not only improves accessibility for logistics operations but also underlines the region’s commitment to sustainable transport as a key node on the busy Malmö-Gothenburg route.

Two phases of development in Åstorp

The development of the Åstorp charging hub will proceed in two phases:

Phase 1: will launch with 4 charging bays equipped with high-performance Combined Charging System (CCS) chargers, each capable of delivering up to 400 kW of power.

Phase 2: will expand to 11 charging bays. Besides the CCS chargers, Milence plans to install Megawatt Charging System (MCS) chargers at the hub in Åstorp as soon as the technology becomes available for faster and even more reliable charging.

The Åstorp hub will also offer various amenities such as a lounge, showers and toilets to enhance the customer experience.

Anja van Niersen, CEO at Milence, stated: “With the launch of our third Swedish charging hub in Åstorp, we are on the move, and I am delighted to accelerate the expansion of our network in the Nordics. Strategically located in the Helsingborg logistics region, close to the E4 motorway, this new hub reinforces our commitment to establishing high-performance green corridors across Europe. We have ambitious plans to further expand our network to several key locations to ensure that all electric trucks have a reliable and accessible public network where they can charge.”
