UPS Increases Natural-Gas Commitment

Shipping giant UPS is spending $50 million over the next year to construct nine liquified-natural-gas refueling stations, Fuel Fix reports.

The company will also buy 1,000 natural-gas-powered tractors as it seeks to cut fuel costs and carbon emissions. Natural gas can be used to fuel high-horsepower engines, often much cheaper than diesel.

 

"The natural-gas industry needs companies to commit to using natural gas to help establish a reliable alternative to traditional fuel, and that is just what UPS is doing," Chief Operating Officer David Abney said in a statement.
