Vos Logistics, the European logistics services provider, said it plans to add more liquefied natural gas (LNG) trucks to its fleet to further reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
The Netherlands-based company introduced LNG trucks in its international mega trailer network in 2015.
For this purpose, truck manufacturer, Iveco developed five LNG low deck prototypes equipped with double fuel tanks allowing for a range of up to 1,000 kilometers.
These trucks had been tested successfully for the past 18 months, Vos Logistics said in a statement.
Based on this experience, Vos Logistics said it would deploy five new LNG trucks in the first quarter of this year, with additional expansions in the pipeline.
Vos Logistics noted that in order to fully utilize the benefits of LNG-fueled trucks, these will be deployed on high kilometer routes between Benelux, Sweden and France. In addition, the company has devised a concept allowing it to run LNG trucks non-stop.
