XPO Logistics has been selected by ENGIE Solutions, through its sustainable mobility subsidiary GNVERT gas, as distribution partner for the transport of liquefied natural gas (LNG) in France. Within ENGIE Solutions, a major player in sustainable mobility, GNVERT is the leading distributor of alternative fuels in France, including compressed natural gas (CNG), decarbonated CNG (BioCNG) and hydrogen, in addition to LNG.
Under the multi-year contract, XPO will transport natural gas from the LNG terminal in the port of Fos-sur-Mer, near Marseille, to all ENGIE Solutions fuelling stations in the Great Southeast region. To carry the gas in a liquified state, XPO has invested in cryogenic tanks capable of maintaining a temperature of minus 161 degrees Celsius, as well as a dedicated fleet of LNG trucks. Drivers will receive special training in the secure transport of LNG. XPO expects to make the first LNG deliveries in October.
This is a specialised service that very few transport companies offer. For the past decade, XPO and GNVERT have been working together to deploy alternative fuels infrastructure throughout the territory.
