Mail Contractors’ Fleet Is More than 90% CNG
Sheehy Mail Contractors is spreading the word that it’s been honored with a U.S EPA SmartWay Excellence Award “for being an industry leader in freight supply chain environmental performance and energy efficiency.”
Sheehy says that 92% of its truck fleet operates solely on compressed natural gas. The firm’s fist CNG trucks were deployed in 2013.
The firm uses a variety of CNG vendors, and publicized a supply deal with Love’s Trillium CNG this past summer (F&F, August 8). Sheehy has purchased nearly 2 million gallon of CNG fuel thus far this year.
One of 62
“Sheehy has worked hard with our customers to provide an environmentally sustainable service and the SmartWay award validates the hard work we have done to accomplish this goal,” Sheehy Enterprises CEO John Sheehy said in a release yesterday.
Sheehy was one of 62 U.S companies to gain SmartWay recognition. The Excellence Awardees were honored at the American Trucking Associations Management & Exhibition Annual Conference in Florida last week.

As reported in August, Sheehy has also been testing the use of hydrogen in conjunction with CNG to further increase efficiency.
“It is a process,” John Sheehy said, “and if a company wants to be successful with a program like this they have to stay committed to their plan. It is easy to get distracted as soon as something does not go perfectly.”
