In cooperation with Don Trucking, Samskip is introducing five brand new IVECO LNG-powered trucks in its fleet, offering shippers an even easier way to reduce their carbon emissions throughout their entire logistical supply chain.
This new partnership with Don Trucking is viewed as the first of many partnerships to come and to rapidly add more LNG trucks to the company’s fleet. Samskip is rapidly moving forward to a more sustainable way of transporting within all layers of its logistical chain and is actively acting on creating a greener fleet by gradually switching to low-emission alternatives.
“We are committed to provide our customers with shipping options that are aligned with their corporate and social responsibility objectives,” said Frédéric Leca, Chief Operating Officer, at Samskip. “Moving to a greener solution and reducing carbon emission is a core strategy for Samskip. We acknowledge that it is increasingly important to be able to offer customers a new way of doing business with us. Further enhancing the use of LNG in our network is a combination that our customers in regional and long haulage require.”
“We are very pleased to see an active involvement from logistical service providers towards sustainable solutions,” commented Dariusz Hejnicki, Board Member, at Don Trucking. “More and more companies are looking to sustainable shipping alternatives and we are proud to be doing this together with Samskip. We take pride to lead by example and show that transporting cargo with a significant reduction of emissions is possible and that the time to make that switch has come.”
Samskip’s sustainable shipping options are already available to all shippers in Europe and the UK.
