TRENTO, Italy: April 12, 2019. The Arcese logistics group has partnered with IVECO to test four 460hp LNG-powered low-floor tractors for use with large capacity trailers.

Arcese will run tests to check consumption, maintenance and management costs and evaluate whether to add these vehicles to its fleet in the FTL Road Freight division (road and multimodal).

IVECO ArceseThese vehicles have been chosen because they ensure reduced fuel consumption while maximising load capacity. They are equipped with a 460 hp engine with a double LNG tank, which ensures an autonomy of 1,150 km.1

With a range of 1,150 kms and quieter than a diesel-poered equivalent, the new tractor reduces NO2 emissions by 90 percent, particle matter by 99 percent and, if biomethane is used, CO2 by 95 percent compared to equivalent diesel types.

“Our company has always been focused on technological progress. Our research and innovation have led to a series of projects that involve the group’s intention to invest in LNG as an alternative to diesel to make our transport services even more environmentally sustainable” said Marco Manfredini, Arcese Group COO. “We’re proud to be one of the first logistics operators in Italy to introduce LNG-fuelled low floor trucks and to have IVECO as a partner in this project,” he continued.

These new vehicles – the first LNG-fuelled low-floor trucks delivered in Europe – are a strategic investment for Arcese and will be part of a fleet of 700 vehicles operating across Italy and Europe.

Arcese’s decision to convert part of its fleet to alternative fuels is to meet the European Union’s 2030 target to reduce CO2 emissions from industrial and commercial vehicles by 30 percent.
