The logistics industry is under pressure: diesel driving bans and environmental zones are forcing them to rethink. In 2018, for example, food specialist HAVI partly switched to Scania trucks with LPG engines.
First assessment after six months with Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG): The comparatively clean technology is suitable for everyday use. From the end of June 2019, the company will have 35 vehicles at its Duisburg site with one of the largest LNG vehicle fleets in Germany. The logistics and supply chain service provider serves customers such as McDonald's, KFC, North Sea and Vapiano and claims to be "one of the first in the food service industry to make a significant environmental impact through sustainable supply chains".
Gradually, a large part of the fleet is to be converted to LNG. "This is how we make our contribution to the sustainable and green products of our customers," says HAVI Logistics CEO Roland Schmidt. In November 2018, the company commissioned its fourth own LNG filling station and operates it together with its partner GasCom. "Since the filling station network in Germany is developing very sluggishly, setting up our own filling station network is essential for our strategy," says Havi.
