We recently acquired two new Volvo FH Electrics directly from the Volvo Trucks factory in Gothenburg. Both of these will be used for the distribution of general cargo in the Gothenburg region.
This investment is another step in our ongoing sustainability efforts, which we are putting more and more resources into.
As a provider of logistics services, we have an obligation to minimise the negative environmental impact of our operations. Therefore, we have a high priority on optimising the carbon efficiency of our operations. NTEX is a pioneer in the use of innovative alternative fuels and technologies, such as methane/diesel, electric and gas vehicles, as well as biofuels and HVO, and we comply with the reduction obligations in Sweden.
NTEX's trucks are in each subsidiary company equipped with I-Save engines, which means that fuel consumption can be reduced by up to ten per cent. I-Save operates at lower RPMs and higher gears for longer periods of time, which also provides a smoother and quieter driving experience. To reduce our CO2 emissions, we continuously work on expanding our fleet with more electric cars and vehicles equipped with I-Save II engines. The two 100 per cent electric Volvo trucks, which we acquired in April, are a clear indication of this.
