GREEN LOGISTICS

L.I.T. COUNTS ON ALTERNATIVE DRIVES

A sustainable economy needs sustainable logistics. The importance of this industry in many companies‘ value chain is too great not to take it into account. Alternative propulsion systems, thus meaning the decision not to use fossil fuels such as petrol and diesel, are one way of planning transport in a more resource-efficient manner. As an innovative logistics service provider, we accompany change from the very first moment. This is why we put four trucks that run on liquefied natural gas (LNG) in operation by the middle of 2019. One vehicle that runs on compressed natural gas (CNG) we are using an even longer time.

With our Iveco LNG trucks, we are i.a. transporting parts for our automotive industry customers.
Three of them are underway on the line between Leipzig and Laichingen for example. The CNG vehicle is used for beverage logistics and operates in Bremen‘s local traffic. Following initial software problems with the software, we have now fully convinced our drivers about the benefits offered by the new trucks.
»With the current use of LNG vehicles, we have taken the first steps towards clean transport,« is Claas Bunjes, Head of Mobility & Digital Solutions, sure.

Above all, LNG vehicles do really well when it comes to taking a look at their environmental benefits. Here, e.g. CO2 emissions are between 10 to 15 per cent lower than for fossil fuels. Even more impressive, is the fact that 95 per cent less fine particles are released into the air. In addition, noise pollution is cut by about half. Thus, despite high acquisition costs the vehicles will amortize themselves after a short time.

For a long time, the greatest challenge when using LNG-powered vehicles was the poor infrastructure. In the meantime, the filling station network has been significantly expanded and drivers can obtain LNG and CNG for their trucks at around 30 filling stations – according to the German Energy Agency, the local infrastructure will be expanded to around 50 filling stations by the end of 2020. The goal is to install at least 200 LNG filling stations by 2025.
