UPS to add 15 new CNG stations
UPS revealed plans to build 15 CNG fueling stations to support the purchase and planned deployment of 1,400 new CNG vehicles over the next year.
Twelve of the CNG stations will be in new natural gas vehicle deployment areas, and three will replace existing CNG stations with more robust, higher capacity equipment, the company said in a statement.
This purchase represents a nearly 30% increase to UPS’s current industry-leading alternative fuel and advanced technology fleet of 5,088 vehicles worldwide.
When the deployments are completed, UPS anticipates its alternative fuel and advanced technology fleet will continue to log more than 350 million miles per year, displacing approximately 54 million gallons of conventional diesel and gasoline annually while reducing total vehicle emissions.
