Brandon leads marketing activities in North America and helps drive the push into new application sectors and new technology areas.

    On this episode I spoke with Robert Falck, the co-founder and CEO of Einride. Based in Sweden, Einride is the first fully electric, totally autonomous transport vehicle to operate on a public road in the world.

Their electric trucks already count Oatly, Coca-Cola, Lidl, and Electrolux as customers. In May, the company announced its $110 million Series B as it gets ready to launch in the US. Robert talked about what he learned at the start of his career at Volvo trucks; raising money by drinking a lot of beer in the early days; how Einride became the first heavy truck to race at Goodwood and their record on the infamous Top Gear track; what it’s like to work with your spouse; and much more...
