The move will increase efficiency, reliability and lower the cost of moving manufacturing materials and components in a critical segment of the company’s supply chain, the company says. GE adds it will also provide data for the company to assess the environmental benefits of electric vehicles to achieve its operation’s sustainability goals. This is the implementation phase of an agreement between GEA and Einride.
