Commercial transportation and supply chain solutions company Ryder System Inc. says its fleet of natural gas vehicles has surpassed a total of 30 million on-road miles.
The fleet consists of liquefied natural gas (LNG) and compressed natural gas (CNG) tractors for customers in California, New York, Michigan, Texas, Arizona, Utah, Maryland, Georgia and Louisiana, as well as in Canada.
Since deploying its natural gas vehicle program in 2011, Ryder says, it has replaced approximately 4.6 million gallons of diesel fuel with natural gas.
In addition to making natural gas vehicles available for rent or lease, Ryder offers a Flex-to-Green Lease solution, which allows fleets to start out with a diesel-powered vehicle and then have the option to convert to a natural gas vehicle at any time following the first full year of the lease.
Ryder currently operates liquefied to compressed natural gas (LCNG) fuel stations at its Fontana and Orange, Calif., service locations. Ryder also offers LNG fueling at its Fulton, Ga., maintenance facility.
