GreenLine Logistics signs LNG supply agreement with Baidyanath LNG

GreenLine Logistics (Green Planet Logistics Pvt Ltd.), India’s first and only LNG-powered heavy-duty logistics company, has entered into an LNG supply agreement with Baidyanath LNG Private Limited (BLNG).

GreenLine Logistics has currently deployed its LNG fleet at leading cement manufacturers for the inbound and outbound transportation of raw materials and finished products. The company plans to deploy 1,600 LNG trucks by March 2024.

These state-of-the-art LNG trucks, manufactured by Blue Energy Motors, reduce CO2 emissions by 28 percent, which equates to an emissions reduction of 24 tonnes of CO2 per truck per year compared to conventional diesel trucks. Across GreenLine’s planned fleet of 1,600 LNG trucks by March 2024, this adds up to a substantial reduction of 38,400 tonnes of CO2 per year.

BLNG is building a network of LNG fueling stations on key truck routes through the strategically located Vidarbha district of Maharashtra.

Commenting on the merger, Anand Mimani, CEO of GreenLine Logistics said: “We are pleased to enter into this agreement with BLNG for the LNG supply of our heavy truck fleets, which allows for rapid expansion of our operational routes for faster decarbonization of the heavy truck in of the region.

“As the preferred partner of many leading low-emission trucking companies, we are investing heavily to enable this transition. Given the higher magnitude of a number of toxic emissions from heavy-duty transport, it is critical for companies to focus on reducing emissions from this aspect of their operations.”

Commenting on this initiative, Vaddadi Subbarao, CEO of BLNG, said: “We are pleased to further advance the initiatives of Nitin Gadkari, Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways, to promote LNG as an automotive fuel for clean Nagpur and Vidarbha, as part of our agreement with GreenLine Logistics. This agreement gives us an additional impetus to our mission to build a wide network of these LNG stations throughout the Vidarbha district. We look forward to supporting GreenLine’s mission to decarbonize the heavy truck by ensuring uninterrupted LNG supply on its key truck routes.”

GreenLine Logistics is committed to decarbonizing heavy-duty transport in India and paving the way for widespread adoption of long-haul LNG-powered trucks by demonstrating its immense benefits for businesses. GreenLine has worked with multiple organizations to create India’s first and only integrated green logistics ecosystem to make LNG trucking a reality in India.
