Finland’s leading logistics and moving service provider, Niemi Services, is renewing its fleet and ordering 15 gas-fueled moving vehicles. The gas vehicles will be in three size categories from cars used for minor installation jobs to large 18-tonne moving trucks. Using 100% Finnish Gasum biomethane (renewable natural gas), the company will become the first in Finland to offer clean and ecological biogas moves that are environmentally sound.
“As the market leader we wish to act as a forerunner and lead the way for other enterprises in our sector. We monitor the key environmental impacts of our work and develop our operations in accordance with the principle of continuous improvement to minimize any environmental burden caused by us. We’re now able to offer our customers ecological and cleaner moves as the first company in Finland. We’re also planning to increase the number of gas-fueled vehicles in the future as the distribution networks expand,” says Niemi Director Juha Niemi.
“We’re very happy to be able to enter into biogas cooperation with Niemi Services. Today’s consumers are increasingly aware about sustainability. The company will contribute toward reductions in carbon dioxide and local emissions by securing cleaner air for people to breathe,” says Gasum CEO Johanna Lamminen.

In the future Gasum will produce an annual total of more than 300 GWh of 100% Finnish biogas and process a total of 425,000 tonnes of biodegradable waste a year.
