Autofreight project

We are proud to participate in this unique project. The Autofreight project aims to reduce the environmental impact, contribute to research for autonomous vehicles and increase the collaboration between companies in Viared Borås. A 32 meter long HCT vehicle with the capacity to haul two 40' containers between Gothenburg Port and Viared, Borås.


About the project
Autofreight is a research and development project to enable automation of long vehicle combinations between Borås and Gothenburg harbor. The project is licensed for technical testing by the Swedish Transport Agency until February 28, 2024. It is funded by Vehicle Strategic Research and Innovation (FFI), which is a collaboration between the state and the automotive industry, as well as participating parties. Volvo Trucks provides a truck equipped with sensors that GDL Transport - one of the transport companies that currently runs containers on the route - will test run. GDL in turn provides five trailers and one dolly. In addition, Volvo has invested in a vehicle for the Chalmers laboratory Revere for vehicle-related research. Borås City is responsible for the construction of the traffic system for more efficient container transport together with Ellos Group, Kerry Logistics, Fristads, Speed ​​Group, Volvo Buses and GDL Transport. Chalmers University of Technology leads the tests with self-driving technology in a truck on AstaZero's test track (truck and trailer supplied by Volvo) and collects data and further develops the transport management system together with the technology consulting company Combitech.
