Gasum has announced that Posti, the Finnish postal and logistics service company, has introduced two LNG-fuelled trucks into its fleet.

The company will use the two full trailer combinations for demanding transport operations on routes including Vantaa-Oulu, Vantaa-Lappeenranta and Vantaa-Turku. They will cover a daily distance of approximately 900 km.

Noomi Jägerhorn, Head of Sustainability, Posti Group, said: “Our target is to reduce carbon dioxide emissions in proportion to net sales by 30% by 2020. To reach this target, we need several different measures, and one of these is using alternative fuels such as LNG. We want to contribute to action against climate change and at the same time act as a responsible example. Over the past 10 years, we’ve reduced our absolute carbon dioxide emissions by more than 34 000 t.”

Sales Manager Juha-Matti Koskinen from Gasum, added: “We’ve been cooperating with Posti for a long time. Posti has 40 biogas-fuelled delivery vehicles in its fleet. LNG is one way of curbing global warming in heavy-duty transport in particular. LNG-powered vehicles can also switch to 100% Finnish and renewable liquefied biogas (LBG) without any special capital outlays.”
