European cash and carry and wholesale supplier Transgourmet has added five CNG-powered Iveco Stralis NP trucks to its fleet.
The refrigerated trucks, which distribute food goods in and around the southern German city of Ulm, have been acquired as part of the company's strategy to cut emissions.
The new trucks have been in operation since July 2018, and have an average mileage of 200km a day.
The five CNG vehicles are four 18-tonne Stralis NP 4x2 trucks and one 26-tonne Stralis NP 6x2. They are equipped with Allison 3000 Series transmissions and feature a Cursor 8 Euro 6 engine that delivers 325PS.
Iveco natural gas engines reduce particulate emissions by 95%, nitrogen oxides (NOx) by 60% and CO2 emissions by up to 90% when using biomethane. They achieve fuel savings of up to 15% compared to diesel trucks.
