U.S. logistics company chooses CNG trucks to cut greenhouse gases
Odyssey Logistics & Technology Corporation has ordered two CNG tractors for its subsidiary, Linden Bulk Transportation LLC. The new vehicles, which will strengthen the company’s commitment to reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, are expected to be delivered in mid-2020 and are the first in Linden’s plan to add more natural gas trucks to the Odyssey fleet.
“Natural gas powers more than 12 million vehicles on the road today – and for good reason,” said Bob Shellman, president and CEO, Odyssey. “Companies like Odyssey use CNG tractors to reduce smog-forming emissions and pollutants and better align with carbon footprint and sustainability goals. We’re really proud of the investments we’re making across the company to enhance our sustainability efforts.”
Currently, the sustainable fleet includes 21 LNG and eight CNG tractors operated by Odyssey subsidiary, RPM Consolidated Services, Inc. “We have customers who specifically request natural gas transportation as part of their corporate sustainability objectives,” said Shawn Duke, president of RPM.
Odyssey integrates green initiatives across its organization. “Sustainability in this industry is a leading focal point for us and we’re making strides toward a more innovative future through the CNG fleet,” said Michael Salz, president, Linden. “The fleet shows our customers how important it is that we meet them on values and battle industry challenges, like climate change, head-on through green initiatives like this.”
