Spanish postal company Correos has chosen LPG to power four low emission pilot trucks. The trial is part of the European Union’s POSTLowCIT Project, which seeks to improve sustainable mobility in the road transport and logistics sectors.

The four heavy vehicles have been converted to LPG in Spain and are travelling long-haul routes between Barcelona, Madrid, Seville and Valencia. With Autogas, Correos plans to save up to 40% in fuel costs and reduce CO2 emissions by more than 15%. The fuel will be supplied by Repsol.

The objective of the POSTLowCIT Project, led by Correos together with the University of Deusto and the vehicle converter Evarm, is to develop an efficient urban freight delivery service by using alternative energy vehicles, with the aim to contribute to the reduction of pollutant emissions, mainly CO2 and NOx, and the noise associated to urban and long-distance traffic.

The project is supported by the EU Connecting Europe Facility funding instrument, and will end in 2019. For more information, please check this link.
