Ecological logistics: Combined drive trucks, efficient route planning and vehicle utilization as the basis of green logistics
Trucks with combined CNG / LNG drive, i.e., environmentally friendly vehicles, are already used by Lidl throughout Slovakia. These are gas-powered cars that produce almost no emissions. However, this is not enough in itself: it is necessary to properly plan routes and utilization as well as reverse logistics from stores to central warehouses. The CNG can handle 400 kilometers per CNG gas tank without any problems. When liquid LNG is added in addition, the range is extended up to 1,200 kilometers. The presentation will focus on the specifics of green logistics in practice.
