PepsiCo leads the way with Scania’s gas trucks


Recommended Posts

Scania Group Press Release  /  August 12, 2020

PepsiCo in Brazil has acquired 18 compressed gas vehicles from Scania, the largest order to date of gas trucks in the country.

The trucks – ten Scania G 340 4x2 and eight Scania R 410 6x2 – will be deployed for PepsiCo’s product deliveries throughout Brazil. Among PepsiCo’s brands, one of the world's leading food and beverage companies, is Pepsi, 7UP, Lay’s, Doritos, Tropicana and Gatorade. The goal is to reduce absolute greenhouse gas emissions across PepsiCo’s value chain by 20 percent by 2030.

“We needed to see substantially reduced emissions”

“PepsiCo was the first in the industry to carry out tests with gas-powered trucks and one of the first to test electric vehicles,” says Eduardo Sacchi, Senior Supply Chain Director at PepsiCo Brasil “This demonstrates our commitment in leading the transition to increasingly sustainable transport alternatives.”

Before purchasing the 18 Scania trucks, PepsiCo Brasil received a demonstration gas truck in November 2019 for trials.

“The testing period was crucial for assessing performance before making a purchase decision,” says Sacchi. “We needed to see substantially reduced emissions, reduced noise  as well as if we could favourably operate the trucks considering our routes and fuel availability.”
