PostNord puts 10 biogas trucks on Denmark’s roads

Danish postal service provider PostNord now has 10 biogas trucks on the roads in Denmark, replacing 10 diesel-powered cars and saving approximately 850 tonnes of CO2 each year.

The new trucks run on compressed biogas, produced from cow and pig manure, helping to reduce the amount of methane in the atmosphere. Biogas-fuelled trucks reduce CO2 emissions and emit less NOx compared to diesel trucks.

“We are happy and proud that we are now making the Danes’ packages a little greener with biogas in the tank of 10 new trucks,” said Jan Greve, director of operational development at PostNord. “It suits us really well that the cars contribute to cleaner and fresher air, and do not make noise like the old cars.”

In Denmark, PostNord has already reduced its CO2 emissions by 73% since 2019 on its internal lorry fleet by, among other things, switching to HVO biodiesel and reducing the number of lorries on the roads by increasing the load capacity of lorries with new pallet racks.

“Fossil-free fuels are an important investment in a greener future,” added Greve, “and we focus on initiatives that make a difference here and now, while at the same time following the development of even better alternatives closely.”

PostNord will soon build its own biogas filling station at the parcel terminal in Brøndby, near Copenhagen, to reduce refuelling times.
