UPS Installs Memphis LNG Fueling Station
UPS has recently installed a new liquefied natural gas (LNG) fueling station on the company’s property on Swinnea Road in Memphis.
As a part of UPS’s “rolling laboratory” approach to alternative fuel technologies, 59 new LNG tractor trailers have been placed in Memphis and join other new LNG big rigs fueling at new stations built in Nashville and Knoxville, Tenn., and Jackson, Miss., the company said in a statement.
Construction recently began to expand by one-third the UPS package distribution facility in Memphis. The project will add approximately 140,000 square feet of building space bringing the total to more than 430,000 square feet at an estimated cost of $70 million.
