UPS Adds 300 Alternative Fuel Vehicles
UPS is adding 306 alternative fuel vehicles to its “green fleet” by placing an order for 167 Compressed Natural Gas delivery trucks while taking delivery of 139 new propane delivery trucks in North America. Additionally, the company has launched an initiative to use biodiesel fuel in its ground support vehicles at the UPS Worldport air hub in Louisville.
The CNG trucks will be deployed early next year in Dallas, Atlanta and four California cities – Los Angeles, Ontario, San Ramon and Fresno. They will join more than 800 such vehicles already in use in the U.S. The propane vehicles are joining nearly 600 propane trucks already operating in Canada and Mexico.
UPS’s global alternative-fuel fleet now stands at 1,629 vehicles – the largest such private fleet in the transportation industry, according to the company.
