Environmentally Friendly Heavy Haulage Trucks
As one of Sydney’s leading road freight companies, we’re very conscious about how heavy vehicles and other forms of transport create air pollution.
To counter this we’ve taken practical measures to reduce our carbon footprint and to help protect the environment.
We’ve also managed to do this while maintaining our ability to provide an unbeatable transport and logistics service.
We do this via the methods explained below.
Low Sulphur Diesel
Our heavy haulage trucks run on BP Ultimate Diesel, a high-performance fuel that contains 10 times less sulphur than regular diesel does.
BP Ultimate Diesel adheres to both national and international standards aimed to lower carbon levels.
We use Euro IV and V Spec Engines (in our latest Volvo Prime Movers)
The European emission standards provide a definition for acceptable limits for exhaust emissions (nitrogen oxides, total hydrocarbon, non-methane hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide and particulate matter) of new vehicles.
The development of emission standards for highway vehicles and engines is coordinated in Australia by the National Transport Commission (NTC).
Australia via the Australian Design Rules certification started adapting to European standards in the early 2000s and the most current of these standards for heavy haulage trucks is Euro IV.
AdBlue is the registered trademark for AUS32 (Aqueous Urea Solution 32.5 per cent) that has been shown to reduce emissions of oxides of nitrogen from the exhausts of our heavy haulage trucks.
AdBlue is a 32.5 per cent solution of high purity urea in demineralised water that is clear, non-toxic and safe to handle and has been manufactured to an ISO standard.
Our freight transport trucks have specially designed tanks and are dosed into the SCR system at a low dose rate of 3-5 per cent. This low dosing rate ensures long refill periods. AdBlue is available through many truck-stops across Australia.
Landbridge Transport is well placed to fully harmonise with both Australian regulations and international standards for heavy haulage truck emissions by improving freight transport productivity, efficiency and environmental performance.
