DHL Freight Acquires Four LNG-Powered Trucks from IVECO
DHL Freight, one of the leading providers of road freight services in Europe, has purchased four LNG-powered Stralis trucks from IVECO in Belgium. These heavy-duty, long-haul trucks have a driving range of up to 930 miles and can handle a tractor and trailer weight of up to 40 tons. The trucks will be employed to create a sustainable transport solution for one of the world’s largest developers and sellers of athletic footwear and sportswear.
“As an excellent long-haul alternative to diesel, natural gas provides a great opportunity for DHL Freight to become front runner in sustainable road freight shipping,” said Uwe Brinks, CEO DHL Freight. “It offers the chance to reduce greenhouse gas and particulate matter emissions, in addition to benefits such as noise reduction and cost savings.”
To reduce all logistics-related emissions net to zero by 2050, DHL Freight was inspired to purchase the tractors as a way to expand its current service offering for the global sporting-goods manufacturer.
