Pipelife is a manufacturer of plastic piping and fittings in Europe. In January 2016, Pipelife Netherlands transferred all of its domestic and international transport operations to Vos Logistics, following the successful partnership with Pipelife Belgium since 2013.
Mark van Loon, Managing Director at Pipelife Benelux, said: “At Pipelife we are going to great lengths in order to be a trendsetter in the area of sustainability. We are always on the lookout for innovations in technology and plastics, while at the same time lowering our energy consumption when it comes to our processes.”
With an eye on both companies’ cost-efficiency and sustainability goals, Vos Logistics has now added two new LNG Ecocombi trucks to the fleet.
Roy van Tilburg, Manager Domestic Transport & Service Deliveries at Vos Logistics, said: “Up until now there was the choice of either one of the two: employing an LNG truck or making use of the Ecocombi for transporting goods. This combination is quite innovative […] The new additions are exclusively deployed for Pipelife.
“Combining the Ecocombi with LNG is a whole new level of engaging in sustainable transport. We are now moving plastic pipes and fittings this way, but of course this also has potential for a wide range of other product areas, such as construction and retail.”
Van Loon added: “The use of the LNG Ecocombi fits right into our mindset. We are glad to work with a logistics partner that enables us to contribute positively to the environment, while doing business responsibly at the same time.”
