TATA STEEL LAUNCHES LNG-transport vehicles in India
Tata Steel flagged-off its first batch of LNG-fuelled vehicles to ferry finished steel products in Nagpur on March 5, 2022. Under its logistics department’s guidance, its vendor partners, Ashmi Logistics and Shreyas Associates, deployed two vehicles each for local movement of products in Nagpur. The vehicles ferry 1,000 MT of goods. The vehicles do not emit sulphur dioxide and their NOx and greenhouse gas emissions are up to 85 per cent lesser than those running on other fuels. Tata Steel made efforts in various areas, including supply chain, to mitigate climate change and manage associated risks. In February 2022, it became the first Indian steelmaker to transport goods using inland waterways from the Haldia Port in West Bengal to Pandu Port.
