GreenLine (Green Planet Logistics), a company that specializes in LNG-fueled heavy trucking logistics, has declared that it will be using its LNG-powered trucks at UltraTech Cement‘s bulk terminal in Pune, Maharashtra. This is the second instance of deployment for UltraTech, as GreenLine had previously deployed a fleet of LNG-powered trucks at their Awarpur Cement Works near Nagpur.
“Our association with GreenLine is a step forward on our ongoing efforts to decrease emissions, enhance energy efficiency and promote sustainability.” said Tanmay Pradhan, AVP Logistics, UltraTech Cement.
GreenLine has claimed that their LNG-powered trucks are capable of reducing carbon emissions by 28%, which equates to a reduction of 24 tonnes of carbon emissions per truck per year, when compared to conventional diesel trucks. Furthermore, these LNG trucks also have a considerable impact on reducing other harmful emissions, such as SOx emissions by up to 100%, NOx emissions by up to 59%, and particulate matter by up to 91%.
“We are proud to again be the chosen green mobility partner for UltraTech Cement in their endeavor to reduce carbon emissions from their heavy trucking. Reducing toxic, polluting emissions from road logistics is crucial for businesses, and GreenLine is actively supporting corporations in this endeavor through our fleet of LNG-powered heavy-duty trucks,” said Anand Mimani, CEO, GreenLine.
GreenLine has collaborated with multiple organisations to establish India’s inaugural integrated green logistics system, aimed at making LNG trucking a feasible solution in the country. The company is committed to achieving eco-friendly transportation and is leading the way for the widespread use of LNG-fueled long-haul trucks by demonstrating the significant benefits it can offer to corporations.
