New York-based Manhattan Beer Distributors has added a dozen new compressed natural gas (CNG) trucks to its fleet operating out of Long Island, in Wyandanch, N.Y.
According to coverage from Long Island Newsday, the company now has 27 natural gas vehicles delivering products on Long Island. Overall, Manhattan Beer Distributors operates 75 NGVs, having deployed its first CNG-powered truck in 2002. The company's total fleet numbers 350 units.
Manhattan Beer Distributors drew from a $573,000 federal grant administered by the Greater Long Island Clean Cities Coalition to help fund the NGV purchases.
