DHL Express has introduced two Iveco Stralis 460hp LNG trucks to its fleet, reducing CO2 emissions by 15%, the company said. The vehicles have a range of up to 1,600 km and will cover domestic routes.
Trucks will travel the national route Łódź-Poznań-Wrocław, transporting shipments between DHL Express reloading units. One of the DPDHL Group companies, DHL Fracht, is responsible for the delivery of the vehicles.
“We continue to develop and improve our logistics processes. The expansion of the fleet to include vehicles powered by alternative fuels is a continuation of DHL Express’ efforts to optimize transport within our network. It is also another step towards the implementation of our GoGreen strategy, which assumes neutralization of CO2 emissions to zero by 2050. The implementation of a new type of vehicle also means ensuring the highest quality of services to our customers, ”said Agnieszka Łukawczyk, operations director at DHL Express Polska.
The applied power systems for LNG engines help to significantly reduce the harmful components of exhaust emissions – particulate matter (PM), carbon monoxide (NOx) and carbon dioxide (CO2) – compared to vehicles equipped with a diesel drive, compliant with the current Euro 6 standard.
