Adding 100 LNG-/CNG-tractors to fleet in France
XPO Logistics has made a significant new investment in sustainability with the purchase of 100 Stralis Natural Power Euro VI tractors from Iveco. The new tractors will be assigned 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.
XPO’s 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.
The Stralis Natural Power tractors use a combination of liquefied and compressed natural gas (LNG/CNG) to generate lower NOx emissions than the Euro VI standard and reduce noise in densely populated areas. (ben)
