United Parcel Service of America, Inc. to Build 15 New Compressed CNG Fueling Stations
Apr 8 15
United Parcel Service of America, Inc. has announced plans to build 15 compressed CNG fueling stations to support the purchase and planned deployment of 1,400 new CNG vehicles in 2016. 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. This purchase represents a nearly 30% increase to company's current alternative fuel and advanced technology fleet of 5,088 vehicles worldwide. The CNG fueling stations and vehicle purchases are part of company's ongoing commitment to diversify its fuel sources, implement a fleet infrastructure that lowers tailpipe emissions and increase experience using alternative fuels in freight transport applications. When the deployments are completed, the company anticipates its alternative fuel and advanced technology fleet will log more than 350 million miles per year, supporting the company's goal of driving one billion miles in this fleet by the end of 2017. This will displace approximately 54 million gallons of conventional diesel and gasoline annually while reducing total vehicle emissions. The company plans to deploy new CNG vehicles in 15 cities. The cities are Atlanta, Ga.; Charleston, W.Va.; Dallas, Texas; Denver, Colo.; Doraville, Ga.; Lenexa, Kan.; Lexington, Ky.; Montgomery, Ala.; New Orleans, La.; New Stanton, Pa.; Oklahoma City, Okla.; Port Allen, La.; Shreveport, La.; Richmond, Va., and Roanoke, Va. Currently UPS already has a total of eight CNG fueling stations in California, Colorado, Georgia and Oklahoma and operates CNG vehicles in Germany, the Netherlands and Thailand.
