To reduce rates of emissions and energy
Australian logistics provider orders 42 natural gas-powered Isuzu trucks
Toll Group has heightened its commitment to environmental sustainability following a major acquisition of FSR 700 medium-duty model, which brings the total number of Isuzu CNG trucks in Toll's fleet to more than 70. This acquisition is the largest single NGV fleet purchase since the launch of Isuzu's second generation CNG models three years ago.
The company has been conducting extensive natural gas vehicles trials since 2009, which have led to the most recent purchases. "One of Toll Group's key objectives is to look at ways to manage the environmental impacts within our facilities and operations, and act to reduce our rates of emissions, energy and waste," said Toll IPEC General Manager Rodney Johnston.
Isuzu Australia Limited (IAL) had worked closely with Toll Group in recent years, and its CNG range comprises four models: NLR 200, NPR 300, FSR 700 and FSR 850, all factory-backed.
"Toll Group is a company that recognized the potential of CNG as a transport fuel earlier than most," said IAL National Fleet Sales Manager, Dean Stuhldreier. “Its acceptance and championing of CNG technology will encourage others to get on board and also reap the benefits.”
