Saica, Carreras and Iveco

Saica, Carreras and Iveco are collaborating in a pilot project to use Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) as fuel for mid and long distance freight transportation. 

The project, which had its first test at the end of last summer, is part of the company’s ‘Lean & Green’ initiative. Its objective is to decrease in 20% the CO2 emissions of the Supply Chain in a period of 5 years.

Among other actions, Saica is working with Carreras to use Iveco Stralis NP trucks in all mid and long distance transportation, so the CO2 emissions will be reduced in 22.3% compared to regular diesel trucks. The new Iveco vehicle, with a 460 CV engine, has the same payload as a traditional truck and a range of up to 1,500km, but with a lesser carbon footprint.

For Saica, ‘Lean & Green’ project has great importance due to its impact in the decarbonisation of the transportation. Besides, is an example of our commitment to work with suppliers and customers to achieve a sustainable development throughout the production cycle.
