October 13, 2020. Savon Kuljetus Oy, Finnish transport and infrastructure business, is to start using ten biogas-powered delivery vehicles from the end of the year. The company earlier mostly operated in the Savo region but with new gas vehicles can expand its operations to the Greater Helsinki Area, Kotka, Lahti and Hämeenlinna.
“We want to be a leader in the transition taking place in the logistics sector. We are ready now and in future both to invest in and commit to new low-emission motive power in line with the wishes of our customers,” says Kimmo Pekonen, Business Director at Savon Kuljetus.
“We’re happy to see how switching to biogas offers our customers new business opportunities. Savon Kuljetus is a good indication of how biogas is not just an investment in a vehicle but can also provide a company with an opportunity to grow. Each cleaner vehicle on the roads is a step towards reducing emissions and clean transport,” says Juha-Matti Koskinen, Sales Manager, Traffic, Gasum.
