    UPS Sets 2017 Goal of One Billion Alternative Fuel Miles - WSYR

    The shipping giant UPS, or United Parcel Service, aims to chalk up one billion miles driven by alternative fuel/advanced technology vehicles by 2017, the company said on Monday, releasing its annual sustainability report.

    "UPS also set a new alternative fuel goal," said David Abney, UPS chief operating officer. "By 2017, the company will reach one billion miles driven by alternative fuel/advanced technology vehicles - more than double the previous 400 million mile goal."

    Ground and air fuel savings, increased investments in alternative fuel vehicles, and retooled routes that shaved 12.1 million miles from ground deliveries were documented in the company's annual Sustainability Report, released Wednesday.
