Scania has secured an order for 124 gas trucks from Brazilian transport company Reiter Log, doubling the size of the company’s fleet.
Reiter Log made its first step towards sustainability in 2021 when it purchased a fleet of 124 trucks powered by Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) and biomethane. In 2022, the company took another significant step in its sustainability journey by increasing its fleet of gas trucks by 100 per cent. Vanessa Reiter Pilz, Environment, Social and Government (ESG) Director at Reiter Log, said, “we believe we are part of a sustainable ecosystem and thank Scania for providing us with ways to go on this journey together.”
For Scania, being Reiter’s partner reinforces the importance of working together to transform the transport sector. Silvio Munhoz, Manager of Scania’s Commercial Operations in Brazil, expressed his gratitude, saying, “We are grateful for the trust in Scania and in the focus on sustainability that we have been sharing for some time. We need to find transport companies that believe in sustainability, understand the value, and have the ability to create a sustainable chain to benefit society. This is what happens in our partnership with Reiter.”
Reiter Log, founded in 2008, is located in Nova Santa Rita, in southern Brazil, and operates throughout Brazil and neighbouring countries such as Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Paraguay, and Bolivia. The company’s commitment to sustainability is evident in its actions, and its partnership with Scania is a testament to its dedication to promoting sustainability in the transport sector.
