Milence, the joint venture between Daimler Truck, the TRATON GROUP, and Volvo Group, is making a strong market entry into the German market with two charging hubs under construction and scheduled to open in the second half of 2024.

These hubs, located north and south of Leipzig will connect Berlin with southern Germany.

“Germany is one of the key countries for freight transport in Europe. It is therefore vital that the right charging infrastructure is in place to accelerate the transition to electrification,” states Anja van Niersen, CEO of the company.

“Milence is proud to contribute to this movement with two charging hubs that will strengthen the Scandinavian Mediterranean corridor,” she adds.

The first charging hub will be near Hermsdorfer Kreuz, in Thüringen, a key location on the corridor and strategically located on the A4 between Poland and Frankfurt am Main.

The hub is expected to be operational in September 2024 and will allow all trucks, regardless of brand, to recharge.

The second hub in Vockerode, Sachsen-Anhalt scheduled to open in July 2024, is strategically located on the A9 between Berlin and Leipzig.

Its location next to a new secure truck park will allow drivers to benefit from the best amenities.

Both charging hubs will offer a range of amenities designed to enhance the driver’s rest and recharge experience.

These will be local and not operated by Milence.

Each charging hub will follow a phased development approach:

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

Phase 2: Will bring the expansion with additional charging bays and incorporate Megawatt Charging System (MCS) technology chargers as soon as available for more power and even more reliable charging solutions.

“Our charging hubs at Hermsdorfer Kreuz and Vockerode are a significant step in our commitment to electrifying Germany’s major transport routes and providing a reliable and accessible charging network for heavy-duty vehicles,” says van Niersen.
