DCBL intends to convert 300 trucks to LNG as part of its green logistics strategy for the decarbonization of its transportation fleet.
For the inbound and outbound logistics of raw materials and completed goods, the company has deployed two different types of trucks: trailers and bulkers. Comparing the GreenLine LNG carrier to traditional diesel trucks results in a 28% decrease in carbon (CO2) emissions, or a reduction of 24 tonnes of carbon emissions per year. This results in a substantial reduction of 840 tonnes CO2 per year throughout the initial fleet of 35 LNG trucks. Besides from reducing particulate matter by up to 91%, NOx emissions by up to 59%, and SOx emissions by up to 100%, these LNG vehicles also dramatically reduce other harmful emissions.

CEO (Chief Executive Officer), Anand Mimani, commented on the association, GreenLine is proud to be the chosen partner of DCBL in their journey to decarbonise heavy trucking and will be investing Rs 250 crore to enable a transition of 10% of their fleet to LNG by March 2024. Given the higher order of magnitude of a range of toxic emissions from heavy trucking, corporates must focus on reducing emissions from his aspect of their business operations.
