“Kane has a long-standing commitment to sustainable operations,” president and CEO Pete Westermann said in a release.

“Advances in vehicle technology now make it feasible to use CNG-powered commercial trucks for long hauls and in the mountainous terrain of the northeastern and western states,” states the Kane announcement.

Each truck’s range is approximately 425 miles between fuel stops, the company said.

Delivery of the trucks is expected by August, Kane said, noting that it manages 21 distribution centers across the U.S., and operates more than 200 power units.

The new CNG trucks will operate out of Scranton.
