New Station in Kentucky to Support 20-Truck Fleet
Clean Energy said at Fleets & Fuels presstime that it’s secured a four-year contract from Ryder System to provide liquefied natural gas fuel for a fleet of 20 trucks “that move goods for Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Kentucky, Inc., Toyota’s largest manufacturing facility in North America located in Georgetown, Ky.”
The vehicles are expected to consume approximately 380,000 GGE/gasoline gallon equivalents of LNG per year, Clean Energy says.
“We are seeing a trend in shippers selecting carriers that demonstrate a commitment to the environment,” said Clean Energy VP Chad Lindholm says in today’s release.
“Natural gas is a perfect fit for carriers because not only is it cleaner, it’s abundant, is available today, performs every bit as well as diesel, and makes sense economically.”
There are seven Freightliner and 13 Peterbilt trucks in the Toyota fleet, Ryder senior director for advanced vehicle technologies and energy products Chris Nordh told F&F.
