Finnish company Containerships has announced that it has signed a collaboration agreement with the Netherlands’ Don Trucking to increase the amount of LNG-fuelled trucks in the region.

According to the statement, the partnership guarantees trucking capacity of 15 new LNG-fuelled trucks for Containerships’ land operations in the port of Rotterdam.

Janne Ritakoski, Containerships’ Head of Land Operations, said: “This capacity increase is an important step in our strategy to use LNG as main fuel source throughout the supply chain.

“Port of Rotterdam is our main hub to and from the mainland Europe. This makes the added LNG-fuelled truck capacity even more significant.”

So far, Containerships’ investments in LNG-based technology come to a total of €200 million, and include four newbuild LNG-powered container vessels and a growing fleet of LNG-fuelled trucks. In addition to this, Containerships opened its own LNG-refuelling station in the UK in 2017.

Ritakoski added: “We strongly believe that LNG’s breakthrough is close, but the infrastructure is still premature. Our ability to use LNG on land operations depends highly on the refuelling infrastructure of the region.”
