UPS is converting ground fleets to renewable natural gas - Freightwaves

UPS purchased 170 million gallon equivalents of renewable natural gas (RNG) to use between 2020 and 2026. Since 2014, UPS ground fleets consumed 28 million gallons of RNG. In order to consume what was purchased, it must annually use close to the total consumed gallons of RNG from the last five years.

UPS’ goal is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 12% in its ground fleets by 2025. Drivers will be able to get RNG from the following locations: Phoenix; Commerce City and Trinidad, CO; Atlanta and Tifton, GA; Kansas City, KS; New Orleans, Port Allen and Shreveport, LA; Omaha, NE; Sparks, NV; Oklahoma City; Chattanooga, TN; El Paso, Fort Worth and San Antonio, TX; and Salt Lake City.

This comes a year after a large purchase of compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicles — 400 tractors and 330 terminal trucks. The purchase occurred with the intention of converting the liquified natural gas (LNG) and CNG fleets to RNG, forcing the development of the infrastructure, including additional pipelines to increase pipeline capacity of natural gas.
