Containerships, a logistics company and Don Trucking, a company specialized in transborder transport, have signed a long-term partnership agreement based on the use of liquefied natural gas (LNG).

As part of this partnership, Don Trucking will deliver guaranteed trucking capacity to Containerships in the form of 15 LNG-fueled trucks for the next five years.

The agreement between Containerships and Don Trucking is in line with the latest proposed EU legislation to reduce CO2 emissions from trucks by 20 percent from 2025 and by 35 percent from 2035.

“This partnership with Don Trucking is an important step in our strategy to use LNG in all our vessels and trucks,” said Arjan Bijl, transport manager at Containerships Rotterdam.

He noted the company believes that LNG’s breakthrough is very close, although the infrastructure is still premature.

“Whilst we are taking a risk to invest in LNG, we believe that LNG is the road forward,” says Don de Jong, founder of Don Trucking.

The pair is looking to launch an LNG trucking community in January 2019 with an aim to form of a peer-to-peer network to share experiences.
