Linfox adds CNG trucks to Thailand operation

Linfox’s fleet for its Tesco Lotus Express Dry operation, located at Bang Bua Thong DC near Bangkok, has now taken delivery of eight new compressed natural gas (CNG) Isuzu FR 86 trucks that exceed Euro 5 emissions regulations as part of the company’s goal to reduce its rate of carbon emissions by 50 per cent by 2015.

“The CNG engines produce 15 to 30 per cent less greenhouse pollutants than their diesel equivalents, including zero particulate matter,” explained Linfox Fleet Manager Thailand, Ken Coulson.

The new rigid trucks have an eight tonne payload and have been built for driver comfort.

To add, the Isuzu CNG engines are specifically built for CNG, rather than being adapted diesel engines.
