CNG Fuels trucks

Waitrose - Case Study - CNG Fuels

Waitrose first moved into gas as a fuel for trucks in 2013, by running a fleet of 50 dual-fuel (gas and diesel) vehicles

The dual-fuel vehicles were not as reliable as first expected and Waitrose order its first two dedicated Bio-CNG (running on 100% CNG) vehicles in 2015. A further 10 Bio-vehicles were ordered in 2016, another 64 in 2017/2018

“For us, operating dedicated gas trucks has transitioned from being a trial, to being ‘business as usual’, with positives on carbon reduction, driver acceptance and cost. Operating them has, in the best way possible, become boring.”

From 2019 onwards Waitrose is expected to order 40-60 new Bio-CNG trucks every year until the HGV fleet is 100% Bio-CNG in 2027/28

CNG Fuels has supported and continues to work with Waitrose as they transition to 100% renewable biomethane HGV fleet.

“We have been pioneering the adoption of long-distance biomethane trucks in the UK and scaling this up to our entire heavy truck fleet will deliver significant environmental and operational benefits. Five biomethane trucks produce the same emissions as one diesel lorry and they are also much quieter, helping reduce not only greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution but also noise pollution in our cities.”
