Fresh & Easy Adds Ryder Natural Gas Vehicles to Fleet
The grocery chain’s new natural gas vehicles produce 20 to 30 percent less emissions than comparable diesel vehicles, Fresh & Easy says.
The vehicles were made available through a $38.7 million project run by Ryder and the San Bernardino Associated Governments, part of a joint public/private partnership between the U.S. Department of Energy, the California Energy Commission, the Southern California Association of Governments Clean Cities Coalition and Ryder.
“We’re happy we can offer innovative and efficient trucks that enable Fresh & Easy to not only lower transportation costs and increase efficiencies, but also have clear and measurable benefits for reduced emissions,” said John Sonia, Ryder’s senior vice president of operations for dedicated contract carriage solutions.
“Today’s complex supply chains require unwavering operational excellence, and this new vehicle technology allows Fresh & Easy to transition their fleets and maintain this excellence, with the added environmental benefits of natural gas.”
