Iveco to Supply 500 New Stralis NP Trucks to Jost Group
Iveco has secured a contract to supply new Stralis NP vehicles to the pan-European transport and logistics firm Jost Group.Under the deal, Iveco will supply 500 new Stralis NP vehicles, which will run on liquefied natural gas (LNG). Iveco will supply the first 150 vehicles during 2018, while the remaining vehicles by 2020.
The new vehicles will replace four to five years old diesel-powered vehicles in the Belgian firm’s fleet of 1,400 trucks and 3,000 trailers.
Jost Group is already operating 132 Stralis vehicles, including two running on compressed natural gas (CNG).
With operations in 10 European and North African countries, Jost Group provides full, partial and bulk load services such as dry freight and temperature controlled cargos, as well as movement of containers, dangerous goods and waste.
Jost Group owner Roland Jost said: “This marks a key turning point for our business as we begin a strategic move away from our dependence on diesel and towards green logistics, as requested by our customers, which are demanding a more sustainable transport.
“Our excellent experience operating Stralis Euro 5 EEV diesel vehicles has seen us establish a solid relationship with IVECO, supported by a very strong service network across Belgium.”
“This played a key role in our decision to take the next step on the path to sustainability, choosing the IVECO Stralis NP as the best solution. We’re proud to be amongst the early adopters of this new technology: our goal for the next three years is to have 35% of our fleet running on LNG. Our Group is also supporting this with an investment in our own LNG refueling infrastructure, with plans to open up to three filling stations within our major operating centres in Belgium.”
Pierre Lahutte, IVECO Brand President, explains: “Gas offers the widest range of opportunities to replace diesel in the commercial vehicle market – it’s no longer a fuel of tomorrow, it’s a fuel of today. This has been firmly demonstrated with one of Europe’s biggest fleets selecting the Stralis NP, running on LNG, to lead their fleet replacement programme. Jost Group has clear sustainability goals, and recognises the 2 benefits that our advanced experience in natural power vehicles can bring to its operation. We are extremely pleased to be growing our share of their fleet, and introducing the Stralis NP and LNG into their operations.”
Demand for LNG is growing rapidly across Europe, with the German Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI) having identified LNG as the best solution for long-distance road transport in the short term and for the next 10 to 15 years. When running on fossil derived natural gas, the Stralis NP’s CO2 emissions are up to 10% lower than its diesel equivalent, depending on mission and gas composition – rising to up to 95% lower with the use of biomethane. With IVECO’s natural gas technology, the level of particulates are negligible and the NOx 50% lower compared to diesel over long haul missions. It is also much quieter, reducing engine noise levels by around 50% – aiding deliveries in urban areas.
IVECO was the first manufacturer in the world of commercial transport to recognise, in 1991, the potential of natural gas – foresight that saw the company develop a full range of natural gas-powered trucks, vans and buses. Today, more than 22,000 IVECO gas-powered vehicles have been sold.
Jost Group is a family business employing more than 2,800 members of staff, with offices spanning 10 countries in Europe and North Africa. It offers full, partial and bulk loads, including dry freight and temperature controlled cargos, plus the movement of containers, dangerous goods and waste.
Jost Group is also the international key-partner in inter-modality, in air & sea freight and warehouse logistics, with its 300.000m² of interconnected warehouses. (www.chinatrucks.com)
