Carbon Footprint Reduction Solution by Global Transportation Leader

UPS has deployed 245 new delivery trucks powered by Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) to cities in Colorado and California.

The new CNG trucks have been deployed over the past month: 140 in Denver, Colorado, and 18 in San Ramon, 16 in Fresno, 59 in West Los Angeles and 12 in Ontario, California.

The vehicles are part of UPS's continued effort to reduce emissions from the use of fossil fuels like gasoline and diesel and lower its carbon footprint.

UPS began deploying alternative fuel vehicles in the 1930s with a fleet of electric trucks operating in New York City. Today, UPS operates one of the largest private fleets of alternative fuel vehicles in its industry - more than 1,900 in total.
