Iveco to supply 500 LNG trucks

Iveco is to supply Jost, the European logistics group, with 500 Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Stralis NP trucks.

The first 150 vehicles will enter into operation during 2018, with the full fleet to be in service by 2020.

The group’s goal is to have 35 per cent of its fleet running on LNG and is supporting this with an investment in its own LNG refuelling infrastructure, with plans to open up to three filling stations within its major operating centres in Belgium.

The new trucks will replace pre-Euro VI diesel-powered vehicles, aged four to five years, in the company’s fleet of 1,400 trucks and 3,000 trailers.
