Deutsche Post DHL has introduced two so-called Teardrop trailers as well as an LNG truck for the first time in Belgium. The vehicles will be operated by DHL partner Ninatrans.
The LNG truck supports the green transport solution and it will be built by Iveco.
Patrick Boone, Vice President Road Network Europe, DHL Express, said: “Green transport solutions are a vital part in modern logistics operations. We have been working with our partners and customers to create tailor made answers to their transport needs. The teardrop trailer and the LNG truck perfectly represent this approach and will help to reduce the environmental impact of the operations.”
This approach is in line with Deutsche Post DHL’s overall strategy, called ‘Strategy 2020’. One aspect is the continuous emphasis on green business solutions with the aim to improve CO2 emissions by 30% by 2020.
The LNG truck has a reach of approximately 700 km and will refuel at an LNG station in the city of Tilburg, the Netherlands. Overall, the use of natural gas will help to reduce consumption and CO2 emissions by 5 to 10%.
