Aldi Süd rolling out e-car charging stations on major German motorways

dpa / Handelsblatt

Discount supermarket chain Aldi Süd is equipping 28 of its branches along major traffic routes in Germany with electric vehicle charging stations, according to a dpa article carried by Handelsblatt. The move represents a shift from the group’s focus on building charging stations in urban areas, according to the company. “Until now, we have concentrated on metropolitan areas and inner cities. Now, we are also making it possible for our customers to plan their holiday trips with us,” Florian Kempf, head of energy management at Aldi Süd, said at the opening of a new charging station off the A5 motorway in Hesse.
