The first truck using LNG as fuel has loaded a trailer with LNG at the Gate terminal in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. The trailer with this alternative fuel for trucks and ships is now also transported in a new way.

The first truck is an IVECO Stralis NP400, which has enough power to transport the heavy trailer for Rolande. Rolande, the transport company, Chr. Vermeer Transport and Gate terminal are happy with this first loading.
