Scania Transport Laboratory fleet running almost entirely fossil fuel-free

November 12, 2018 |

In Sweden, as of 2018, the Scania Transport Laboratory fleet runs almost entirely on fossil free fuel and hybrid drive which reduces carbon emissions by more than 95 percent. The lab isn’t yet 100% fossil fuel-free as there is a lack of HVO/biodiesel fuel stations outside Sweden which means that some trucks sometimes have to refuel with some regular diesel.

Every day, the Scania Transport Laboratory operates 14 truck and trailer combinations between the manufacturing plants in Södertälje, Sweden, and Zwolle in the Netherlands. Over the course of a year, each truck is driven for approximately 400,000 kilometers, which is about three times as much as a truck would run in the same time in an average haulier operation. That means the lab offers a uniquely quick opportunity for Scania to test and assess vehicle quality and performance. Equally important is to test theories about flow analysis and planning as means to remove waste from the transport system, as well as driver training.
