In a partnership with Agility Fuel Solutions, UPS has announced plans to add a whopping 6,000 natural gas trucks to its fleet.
The three-year commitment will begin in 2020 and run through 2022. The new vehicles will be equipped with compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel systems provided under an exclusive agreement with Agility, a business of Hexagon Composites.
Agility will provide end-to-end solutions for heavy-duty gas trucks, terminal tractors and medium-duty walk-in vans (i.e., UPS’ familiar brown delivery trucks). These solutions will include on-board CNG fuel storage and management, as well as Agility’s natural gas engine fuel systems. Since 2016, the company has provided natural gas fuel storage and delivery systems to more than 1,700 UPS trucks.
“We are proud to continue our collaboration with UPS, a front-runner in clean transportation,” says Seung Baik, president of Agility Fuel Solutions. “With our range of proven and reliable clean fuel technologies and aftermarket support capabilities, we will assist UPS in reaching its sustainability targets.”
