Longistics has added an innovative new truck to its transportation line. The fuel-efficient Kenworth T700 has a Cummins ISX SmartTorque (ST) engine that meets EPA 2010 emissions standards and is California Certified Clean Idle, all while delivering up to 1,750 lb-ft of torque and increasing fuel economy up to 3%.
Based in Research Triangle Park NC, Longistics specializes in cold-chain logistical support and problem-solving services for a range of pharmaceutical manufacturers and distributors of high-value, high-security products.
As gas prices hover around $4, this engine will enable Longistics to do its part to conserve a valuable resource. The truck’s shape contributes to its fuel efficiency by merging the hood, fenders, roof, headlamps, bumper, and fairings into a precise shape for low aerodynamic drag. The Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) and exhaust gas circulation system allow the T700 to produce near-zero emissions as well.
A provider of third-party logistics, Longistics has a worldwide reach and growing presence in China and other markets. It provides transportation, warehousing, and Foreign Trade Zone management operations at FTZ 214 in the Global TransPark and FTZ 93, which is adjacent to the Raleigh-Durham (NC) International Airport.
