French transport firm Jacky Perrenot is looking to run 1000 natural gas-fueled vehicles on the road by 2020. 

The company has placed a new order with Iveco for 250 natural gas-fueled trucks, adding to 250 trucks ordered last year. Iveco said in a statement that the latest order includes nearly 200 vehicles with the recently unveiled LNG engine, for operation throughout France.

By the end of 2018, the company will be running nearly 550 Iveco trucks.

Commenting on the order, Philippe Givone, CEO of the Perrenot Group’s transport unit, said, “our ambition is to reach the goal of exceeding 1,000 gas vehicles in our fleet before the end of 2020. After the strong development of the food sector we now have strong expectations in the construction sector.”

Demand for LNG is growing rapidly in Europe as the German Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI) has identified LNG as the best applicable solution for long-distance haulage in the short term and for the next 10 to 15 years.
