Bunzl Canada Pilots Natural Gas Vehicle to Reduce Environmental Footprint

Distribution leader partners with Vision Truck Group & Enbridge Gas to lower emissions on busiest routes.  

BURLINGTON, ON, July 12, 2019 /CNW/ - Bunzl Canada (bunzlcanada.ca) announced today the pilot test of the company's first natural gas-powered transport truck for delivery routes in southwestern Ontario. The fuel-efficient vehicle will not only reduce greenhouse gas emissions and decrease fuel consumption but will also achieve engine noise reduction of an estimated 10 decibels.    

"This new technology is projected to reduce emissions by 25% while improving overall fuel efficiency," said Tim McKinnon, Operations Director. "Now that there are tractor-friendly refuelling stations located across Ontario, we can operate these vehicles on the Highway 401 corridor from Windsor to Montreal. It's an exciting opportunity for us to reduce our environmental footprint on some of our busiest transportation routes."

Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) has been used in transportation since 1939. There are currently more than 1,100 CNG vehicles operating in Ontario and eastern Canada, and over 50,000 operating in the U.S.

"We are confident that Bunzl Canada's CNG powered transport truck pilot test will demonstrate why cleaner and more affordable CNG trucks are the ideal choice in the competitive transportation business," says Scott Dodd, Director of Business Development for Enbridge Gas. "In addition to long-term cost savings and emission reductions as compared to diesel, other proven advantages include a quieter, cleaner truck for employees and the customers they deliver to."

Sustainability is a key corporate focus for Bunzl Canada in both its operations and the products it supplies. "This is just one of a number of high priority initiatives designed to reduce our company's environmental footprint, and help our customers do the same," said the company's President, John Howlett. "We continue to source a wide range of environmentally preferable product alternatives and are developing creative partnerships with innovation leaders in a variety of recycling technologies."

Reusable plastics figure prominently in Bunzl's newest food packaging product offerings along with the latest in compostable packaging materials.
