Linfox – Low emissions fleet


Recent additions to Linfox’s fleet for Tesco Lotus in Thailand are reducing carbon emissions.
In a statement from the company, ‘Eight new compressed natural gas (CNG) Isuzu FR 86 trucks are now contributing to Linfox’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,” Linfox Fleet Manager Thailand, Ken Coulson said.
Based at the Tesco Lotus Express Dry operation in Bang Bua Thong DC, near Bangkok, the new CNG vehicles engines are specifically built for the alternative fuel, ‘rather than being adapted diesel engines’. Linfox
