For the launch of LNG-fueled large trucks for the transportation of cement, JK Lakshmi Cement recently partnered with GreenLine, a leader in green and intelligent logistics in India. With this partnership, GreenLine will make it possible for JK Lakshmi Cement to gradually decarbonize its road logistics processes over the next few years.

The firms intend to dramatically expand this over the following two years, starting with a fleet of 10 LNG trucks operating on the Sirohi in Rajasthan to Surat in Gujarat route. Every LNG truck reduces annual CO2 emissions by around 35 tonnes. JK Lakshmi Cement intends to lower its carbon emissions through the transition to LNG-fueled logistics in order to both meet its environmental objectives and improve its ESG performance. Indian trucks typically run on diesel fuel. On long-distance routes, liquefied natural gas (LNG) provides a less polluting substitute.
