UPS Becomes Largest Renewable Natural Gas User in Shipping Industry

UPS LNG tractor and propane package carUPS has entered into an agreement to purchase renewable natural gas (RNG) for its delivery vehicle fleet from Clean Energy Fuels, making it the largest RNG users in the US shipping industry.

RNG, also known as biomethane, can be derived from sources including decomposing organic waste in landfills, wastewater treatment and agriculture.

The company has a goal of driving 1 billion miles using its alternative fuel and advanced technology fleet by the end of 2017.

UPS fueling stations in Sacramento, Fresno and Los Angeles will utilize Redeem RNG for refueling tractors and delivery vehicles in UPS’s fleet beginning this month. UPS and Clean Energy Fuels estimate that the three stations will provide about 1.5 million gallon equivalents annually of RNG fuel to nearly 400 UPS CNG vehicles in California.

UPS’ natural gas fleet includes more than 2,500 medium and heavy-duty vehicles.

UPS currently operates natural gas tractors on RNG in the UK, through a partnership with Mercedes Benz.

Last month UPS said it plans to build 15 compressed natural gas fueling stations to support the purchase and planned deployment of 1,400 new CNG vehicles over the next year.
