DHL drives innovation for quieter logistics

December 2014

DHL has launched a new Compressed Natural Gas -powered concept truck for use in towns and cities. The vehicle combines new engine and ignition technology with pioneering cab safety features to support the journey towards cleaner, safer, quieter, urban transport.

The truck design includes a new spark ignition ‘Otto Cycle’ engine, which can reduce engine noise by up to 50% when compared to a standard diesel engine.

As part of DHL’s work to use more environmentally friendly vehicles, the new truck uses CNG and Bio-Gas to significantly reduce its CO2 footprint and pollutants. Compared to a standard Euro 6 diesel vehicle, the vehicle produces 68% less Particulate Matter (PM) and 39% less Nitrogen Oxides (NOx).
