Girteka Logistics bets on trucks powered by LNG

February 8, 2019. Europe’s leading transport and logistics company Girteka Logistics, with a stable growth of more than 30 percent every year, attributes its success to the ability to meet the needs and requirements of its multinational clients. Girteka Logistics’ globally recognized client base have a high commitment to Sustainable Development Goals, and its transportation of cargo by liquefied natural gas (LNG) powered trucks is a key part of helping them to achieve these goals.

   Recent tests have shown that an LNG powered truck can substantially reduce CO2 emissions by up to 85 percent using Bio LNG, against the same distance covered by a diesel truck. In addition, particulates and nitrogen oxide (NOx) can be reduced by up to 95 percent.

   Having its own fleet of 5.600 trucks, Girteka Logistics is now running a series of test trials with Iveco Stralis 460 NP LNG powered trucks.

   “We started our first tests with LNG trucks in 2018. Back then we already knew that using an LNG-powered truck per kilometer over a 100 km distance is more efficient and better for the environment. We checked both the fuel consumption and the distance that a full tank LNG truck can cover, and our drivers managed to achieve 1500 km on a full tank,” said Donatas Nacajus, Chief Transport Officer at Girteka Logistics.

   The truck was tested in the Benelux countries and in France, because those countries have the best-developed LNG gas station network.
