Nestlé India takes green steps with LNG-powered fleet from GreenLine
MUMBAI : Nestlé India, in partnership with GreenLine, pioneers of LNG-fuelled heavy trucking logistics in India, has taken one more step towards a sustainable future with an LNG-powered fleet. The partnership will help reduce the carbon footprint of the logistics operations of Nestlé India. GreenLine has custom created 46 feet long containers which will be deployed between Nestlé’s factory in Sanand, Gujarat, and Bhiwandi, Maharashtra.
GreenLine’s LNG-powered fleet, comprising state-of-the-art trucks manufactured by Blue Energy Motors, significantly reduces Carbon dioxide, Sulphur Oxides, Nitrogen Oxides, Carbon monoxide and Particulate Matter emissions, thereby enabling emissions reduction from road logistics operations.
Commenting on this initiative, Mr. Sanjay Khajuria, Director, Corporate Affairs and Sustainability, Nestlé India said, “We are accelerating our sustainability initiatives. We are committed towards net zero emissions and sustained logistics is a step in that direction. With this aim we are deploying different modes of transportation using alternate fuel and using bigger vehicles to optimize vehicle capacity utilization. We are hopeful that the association with GreenLine would help us to achieve our objectives.”
Commenting on its partnership with Nestlé India, Anand Mimani, CEO, GreenLine, said, “We are delighted to partner with Nestlé India to help them achieve their emissions reduction goals through adoption of our green mobility solution. Our mission is to enable companies in achieving their sustainability objectives by providing innovative green mobility solutions to decarbonise their road logistics operations. We are committed to creating a cleaner environment and a more sustainable future for generations to come.”
GreenLine is working towards decarbonizing heavy trucking in India and widespread adoption of LNG-fuelled long-haul trucks by showcasing its immense advantages for corporates.
