In order to reduce its carbon footprint, automobile manufacturer Skoda will be introducing five Scania CNG-powered trucks for use at its main assembly plant in Mladá Boleslav, Czech Republic. Four of the trucks will be used to transport car parts from areas within the company’s manufacturing site, while the fifth will be used on a 120km supply chain route following a decision by Czech authorities to permit selected companies to operate 25-metre tractor-trailer combinations on selected routes.

“As part of our overall social responsibility, we are focusing on developing environmentally friendly logistics solutions,” says Michael Oeljeklaus, Skoda’s Board Member for Production and Logistics. “The CNG-powered trucks are a further contribution to being a sustainable company.”
