The combination of both the lightest possible equipment and the best aerodynamic features and options is crucial.

  • Volvo Trucks’ gas-powered Volvo FH LNG and Volvo FM LNG offer a way for companies working with regional and long-haul truck transports to make a smooth transition to more sustainable transport. They deliver the same performance as diesel trucks but with lower emissions and can run on 100% biofuel.
