Swedish logistics companies happy with LBG trucks following tests

January 12, 2021 |

In Sweden, six logistics companies in Sweden tested LBG trucks as a way to reduce their emissions. These logistic companies are part of MaserFrakt, the biggest transportation company in Sweden. According to MaserFrakt, the companies that tested LBG were happy with its climate impact and the drivers appreciated the quiet engines of the LBG trucks. 

The companies also noted that as LBG is a cost-effective fuel, its impact on overall costs can easily be enhanced by a sensible way of driving and the commitment of drivers to the change. One of Maserfrakt’s drivers testing an LBG truck was able to lower his average fuel consumption from 2.7 kg per 10 km to 2.59 kg. With a gas price of SEK 13.54/kg (excluding VAT), this means a cost of SEK 35.07 per 10 km, which is remarkably low.

Over the lifecycle of the fuel, renewable LBG can help to cut greenhouse gas emissions by up to 90% compared to fossil fuel. Liquefied natural gas (LNG) can achieve emissions reductions of up to 20%. Since biogas utilizes the same gas infrastructure as natural gas, switching to biogas is both easy and cost effective.
