Major Corporate Fleet Celebrates Thousands of NGVs


AT&T, the operator of one of the largest corporate fleets in the U.S., is marking a major milestone in clean transportation: the deployment of its 8,000th natural gas vehicle.

The CNG-powered 2014 Chevy Express van, which was manufactured in Wentzville, Mo., was delivered to an AT&T work center in St. Louis and will be used to provide services in that metropolitan area.

‘Operating a diverse fleet, which includes alternative fuel vehicles, supports AT&T's commitment to sustainability and exemplifies how we strive to do business,’ says Jerome Webber, AT&T's vice president of global fleet and transportation management.Â

AT&T is in the midst of a massive long-term initiative that will see $565 million invested in order to add 15,000 alternative fuel vehicles to its fleet by end of 2018. In addition to CNG, AT&T has deployed about 2,000 hybrid-electric, all-electric and extended-range electric vehicles. The company's fleet of AFVs allowed the company to avoid the purchase of 12.4 million gallons of gasoline between 2009 and 2013.
