LIQVIS and Vulcangas are pleased to have gained each other as a strong business associate. “This partnership is an example of our common commitment to provide more logistics companies access to an international LNG filling station network, especially on the frequented route from Italy via Germany to France,” the companies’ representatives say.
Every owner of a VCARD can now benefit from access to the growing LIQVIS infrastructure network and can fill up their trucks at the LNG filling stations in Germany and France. With the newly opened station in Leipzig, LIQVIS offers 10 LNG refuelling stations in Germany and 2 in France.
For LIQVIS, Vulcangas is a valuable business partner because they open doors to strategically highly important customers: Italian freight forwarders and logistics companies.
According to Uniper’s press release, “LIQVIS is looking forward to welcoming all Vulcangas customers at our stations in Germany and France and to supply them with LNG. Vulcangas is also pleased to start its partnership with LIQVIS by adding its infrastructure to the company’s network of gas filling stations in Europe. The new agreement means that Vulcangas will increase its offer with a new strategically located network. It is a pleasure for the company to collaborate with an industry leading partner such as LIQVIS.”
Uniper subsidiary LIQVIS has been operating LNG filling stations since 2017. These are located at strategic transport hubs that serve a particularly high volume of trucks, such as Bad Honnef, Berlin, Bönen, Gotha, Hamburg, Hannover, Kassel, Leipzig, Magdeburg, and Ulm. This year LIQVIS stations will also be commissioned in Alsfeld and Salzbergen. By establishing strategic partnerships for purchasing BIO-LNG from sustainable sources, Liqvis is also setting the course for CO2-neutral heavy-duty logistics. In 2023 Liqvis will offer first BIO-LNG quantities as an alternative fuel for heavy duty trucks at its LNG filling stations in Germany.
VCARD users will find an important tool: thanks to the LIQVIS network, they will also be able to refuel their vehicles in Germany and France.
“This partnership makes Vulcangas very proud and represents a clear snapshot of the good work done in recent years as industry players: thanks to our commitment, more and more logistics companies will have access to a Vulcangas network of LNG filling stations. We are therefore confident that the joint effort between Vulcangas and LIQVIS will result in a major impact for CO2 emission reductions,” Vulcangas’ representatives added.
