Contship’s Hannibal to test Iveco LNG truck
Contship Italia Group said its multimodal transport operator Hannibal entered a working partnership with IVECO to explore the operational performance of LNG engines.
Contship intends to test the LNG trucks prior to finalizing a decision to deploy these trucks within Contship Italia Group Intermodal & Logistic division’s partners.
Live trials are to be performed under the sponsorship of “Poseidon MED“, an EU funded project promoting LNG as a viable alternative fuel in the container supply chain, the company said in a statement.
In partnership with the Italian trucking company LGT Autotransporti Laverde and Iveco’s dealer Milano Industrial, a new Stralis LNG truck was refueled last week for the first time at the Eni liquefied natural gas service station of Piacenza.
