PIMK Ltd. increased its fleet with 50 new IVECO STRALIS NP 400 HP running on Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) to provide green logistics services to its partners. IVECO leads the way in sustainable transport with its advanced natural gas technology.
PIMK Ltd. takes a further step forward in converting its fleet to natural gas to provide sustainable transport solutions with the purchase of 50 new IVECO STRALIS NP AS440S40T/P trucks powered by Compressed Natural Gas (CNG).
PIMK Ltd. is based in the oldest European city of Plovdiv, Bulgaria, and is one of the leading transport companies in Eastern Europe. With a fleet of more than 1,400 heavy commercial vehicles and its PIMK Rail service, the company offers sustainable and innovative friendly transport solutions to its customers throughout Europe and parts of Asia and Africa.
The company’s owners, Mr. Ilian Filipov and Mr. Penko Nestorov, prioritise customer satisfaction and sustainability in their efforts to reduce the environmental impact of their operations and increase their efficiency. For this reason, PIMK Ltd. chose to invest in natural gas-powered vehicles, which they see as the only sustainable choice available today for long-haul road transport, as well as new electric locomotives for PIMK Rail.
Mr. Nestorov and Mr. Filipov said: “With the 50 new IVECO Stralis NP running on natural gas we are meeting the highest environmental standards for transport. These vehicles will be entirely dedicated to transporting goods and food for KAUFLAND across Bulgaria.”
The IVECO Stralis Natural Power CNG vehicles feature a 400 hp engine, generate 99% less PM, 90% less NO2 and 95% less CO2 with bio-methane, compared to equivalent diesel vehicles. With less than 71dB on the Piek Quiet Truck Test scale, these vehicles are perfect for transport in city centres with noise limitations and for night-time deliveries.
PIMK’s sustainable investment includes a full package of services for optimizing the Total Cost of Ownership, which the company sees as a key advantage of IVECO’s range of natural gas commercial vehicles. The investment results from PIMK’s intent to further develop as a green company, and the innovative approach of IVECO and its distributor in Bulgaria, DANUBETRUCK BULGARIA.
