Deploying trucks powered with natural gas (CNG trucks) in distribution transport can make an important contribution to sustainable logistics. The use of this technology, however, involves a number of restrictions with regard to range, filling station availability, vehicle configuration and choice of transport refrigeration unit.
The benefit of the technology lies in possibly circumventing impending driving bans in German towns and cities thanks to significantly improved emission levels. Nevertheless, there are risks relating to costs. The higher cost of acquisition for CNG trucks need to be recovered within their useful life in order to be able to compete with diesels.
Compared with diesel trucks, CNG trucks are around 3 dB quieter.
