Alimerka incorporates 20 LNG trucks for transport

November 4, 2016. Alimerka has added to its road transport fleet twenty vehicles powered by liquefied natural gas (LNG), which are able to reduce the footprint of carbon dioxide (CO2) by 30 percent compared to diesel vehicles.

   So each truck generates 40 tons less CO2 per year, according to the Spanish supermarket chain that has relied on Scania to carry out this operation, representing a more than three million euros investment.

   These vehicles, which have a range of 1.000 kilometers thanks to its two LNG tanks, made road transport to the different outlets that the chain has in Asturias, Castilla y Leon and Galicia.

   The aim of the new commitment of Alimerka, which has its own LNG tank to refuel their trucks within its logistics center in Lugo de Llanera, is to provide a sustainable and efficient solution for the environment, while ensuring reduced consumption and consequent cost reduction.
