Europastry has introduced three natural gas vehicles into its fleet. The IVECO AS 440 T/P NG trucks feature 400 horsepower and a load capacity of 18,000 kg, which along with the trailer can transport up to 40,000 GKG. It has a capacity of 460 liters of CNG distributed in four cylinders and a tank with capacity for 564 liters of LNG.
This type of vehicle guarantees a sustainable transport, since it improves air quality, eliminating practically all the atmospheric pollutants that a conventional truck can emit (70% less NOx and 99% less particles in suspension); it mitigates global warming, by reducing about 15% CO2 emissions and 95% if it uses biomethane, and drastically reduces noise pollution in urban centers.
“The incorporation of these vehicles will allow us to continue building our strategy of sustainability and commitment to the environment through our logistics operations. We hope to achieve the expected goals and continue to increase the fleet of this type of vehicles in our transport network,” said Jordi Fabregat, Europastry’s Director of Operations.
Last year, Europastry announced the integration of two IVECO Schmitz Cargobull mega-trucks into its fleet. These vehicles will also help make logistics more efficient and reduce CO2 emissions by up to 20%.
