Germany‘s Volkswagen Group is expected to accommodate four more car carriers powered by natural gas.
Two gasoline-powered car carriers joined the company’s fleet in 2020, and Volkswagen has now ordered four more to enter service in 2023, he said Wednesday in a statement posted on his website.
The ships will be deployed on the Germany-Mexico road.
“In line with the Group’s commitment to electric mobility and climate neutral production, the LNG fleet used by Logistics represents a major contribution to Volkswagen’s net carbon neutrality by 2050.” Simon motter, head of Volkswagen Group Logistics, said in the statement.
“With these four additional LNG vessels, Group Logistics is continuing its commitment to climate protection and is pursuing the low-emission maritime transport strategy decided on in 2016.
“The new ships will also allow the use of non-fossil fuels in the future, further reducing CO2 emissions.
Two of Volkswagen’s chartered vessels in Europe run on biofuels, the company added.
