The Daabon Group, a Colombian company specialized in agricultural, agro-industrial and port transportation, has launched Elogia Soluciones Logísticas, a sustainable transportation brand with a fleet of 50 Scania G410 A 6×4 Euro 6 tractors powered by natural gas. Initially, the 50 trucks will circulate in the cities of Santa Marta, Barranquilla, Bogotá and Medellín, while next year they expect to complete 100 vehicles, which will be the largest order of this type in Colombia, reported the newspaper La República.
“The investment made in updating our vehicle fleet fills us with pride by guaranteeing an interesting proposal from the logistical point of view and a pioneer in terms of commitment to the environment. Elogia will represent annual sales of $ 180,000 million for the Group and we will be in charge of transporting raw materials or imported products for local and multinational companies,” said Victor Cabello, Manager of Elogia.
Likewise, the company seeks to encourage a new business culture around sustainability and environmental commitment with multimodality and competitiveness, giving adequate use of natural resources.
Within its logistics chain, Elogia will cover the Terlica liquids terminal, the Free Zones of Las Américas and Tayrona, the Port of Santa Marta, Trans Bio and Superlogistics, achieving comprehensive coverage that will promote agility in movements in a sustainable way with the highest quality standards.
“Elogia has three basic pillars, which are based on ecology, logistics and technology. For this reason, we seek to offer all our customers a contribution to neutrality in the emission of greenhouse gases, reducing their emission by approximately 90%, that means that 110 CNG vehicles generate practically the same as 1,000 diesel vehicles,” added Cabello.
