The chairman of the Greens in Baden-Württemberg, Oliver Hildenbrand, also criticized the approach by Daimler: “These mega trucks are a danger to road traffic safety; they damage the environment and will cost billions of tax payer’s money.” Transport minister Hermann now wants to clarify why the car manufacturer is lagging behind in the use of freight trains. “Volkswagen is transporting nearly everything by rail”, said Hermann.
