In early 2020, Scania launched its line in Argentina Green Efficiency with the aim of offering its customers more sustainable vehicles that use only alternative fuels. Originally from the Cordoba town Arroyito, the firm Transport Carbajales owns more than 50 Scania units and chose to add to its fleet a CNG powered truck.
Dedicated to the transport of aggregates, food and cereals, Carbajales SA mainly delivers the company's products Arcor in different areas of the Northwest and Mesopotamia. The new truck chosen, from the Green Efficiency line, is a R410 6 × 2, which was equipped with scalable semi-trailers to move up to 52,5 tons total gross combined weight.
"The engine makes almost no noise, it's a dream!", expressed Orlando carbajales, owner of Transportation. "It is always necessary to innovate, and when we learned about the fuel savings that these trucks mean, we made the decision"He added regarding the 50% reduction in operating costs that the use of CNG means.
In addition to transporting general cargo, the company from Córdoba carries out movement in quarries with four Scania XT 8 × 4 Off-Road. "There are purchases that one makes without knowing how they will turn out, but in the case of Scania it is not like that because, precisely, I know what the brand is, I know what trucks are like and how they work for my company"stated the carrier.
Carbajales SA, with decades of experience in the sector, decided to incorporate with this unit a vehicle that is committed to efficient and sustainable transportation. The units of the Green Efficiency line are designed to work exclusively with alternative fuels, among which are gas (CNG and LNG) and biogas. These options allow, in addition to reducing the customer's operating costs, reducing polluting and noise emissions.
