October 21, 2019. XPO Logistics, Inc. has announced that it has purchased 100 Stralis Natural Power Euro VI tractors from Iveco.
These tractors use a combination of LNG and CNG to generate lower NOx emissions than the Euro VI standard, and reduce noise in densely populated areas. In the statement, XPO claims that this investment will expand its natural gas fleet in France to 170 tractors, with more than 20 additional LNG/CNG vehicles operating in the UK, Spain and Portugal.
These new vehicles will be dedicated to the company’s less-than-truckload network in France, serving customers in the Greater Lyon and Paris areas and the South West and Northern regions.
Troy Cooper, President of XPO Logistics, said: “Our ongoing investments in alternative fuel technologies are an important part of our strategy as a sustainable business. XPO will continue to partner with truck manufacturers and energy suppliers to make sure we have the best resources to meet our customers’ demand for environmentally friendly solutions.”
