Nestlé India, in collaboration with GreenLine, the pioneers of LNG-powered heavy trucks logistics in India, has taken another step towards a more sustainable future by launching an LNG-powered fleet. The collaboration will assist Nestlé India’s logistics operations lower their carbon footprint. GreenLine has designed 46-foot containers that will be transported between Nestlé’s factory in Sanand, Gujarat, and Bhiwandi, Maharashtra.
GreenLine’s LNG-powered fleet, which includes state-of-the-art vehicles made by Blue Energy Motors, dramatically reduces carbon dioxide, sulphur oxides, nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, and particulate matter emissions, allowing emissions from road logistics activities to be reduced.
Mr. Sanjay Khajuria, Director, Corporate Affairs & Sustainability, Nestlé India, commented on the effort, saying, “We are accelerating our sustainability initiatives.” We are committed to achieving net zero emissions, and continuous logistics is a step in that direction. With this goal in mind, we are deploying several forms of transportation that use alternative fuels and larger vehicles to maximise vehicle capacity utilisation. We are optimistic that our collaboration with GreenLine will help us reach our goals.”
Anand Mimani, CEO of GreenLine, stated, “We are delighted to partner with Nestlé India to help them achieve their emissions reduction goals through adoption of our green mobility solution.” Our mission is to help businesses achieve their sustainability goals by providing innovative green mobility solutions to help them decarbonize their road logistics operations. We are dedicated to ensuring a cleaner environment and a more sustainable future for future generations.”
GreenLine is demonstrating the huge benefits of LNG-fueled long-haul trucks to corporates in order to decarbonize heavy haulage in India. GreenLine has worked with a number of organisations to develop an integrated green mobility ecosystem in order to make low-emission LNG transportation a reality in India.
