Following the changes in the international transportation standards, our company Sachs Trans International has decided to purchase a new Scania vehicles powered by LNG – liquid natural gas.
The possibilities offered by the use of the LNG vehicles are large and still growing. Our investment is motivated by the economic aspect, expansion of transport tasks and protection of our environment.
The economic benefits are primarily a lower cost of fuel and exemption from some tolls. The LNG powered Scania have access to roads subjected to restrictions for regular trucks, which allows us to reach a new places. In consideration for the environment, our new Scania have much lower emissions and noise levels, which contributes to the comfort of living.
Our current 300 vehicle fleet has been increased by 10 Scania tractors powered by LNG, which is 40% of the investment undertaken. It gives us the opportunity to test them in their daily work. The main differences between the LNG and the standard tractors are “step-by-step” refuelling procedures, equipment and clothing. Our drivers are trained by an experienced team of instructors. The main challenge for the forwarders is the limited number of stations selling the LNG.
Bearing in mind the development of our company and the benefits of environmental protection, we are expecting to provide many economical and ecological transports.
