BY AMERICA'S NATURAL GAS ALLIANCE (ANGA)
UPS, the world's largest package-delivery
and logistics company, operates one of the
nation's largest NGV fleets. Its iconic brown
delivery trucks are instantly recognizable,
but what many people don't know is that UPS
is truly committed to the environment. The
company has used alternative-fuel vehicles,
including NGVs, to transport packages for
years, and in 2014 most of the new tractortrailers UPS puts on the road will be powered
by natural gas.
Longtime employee J.D. Baker, who works
at the UPS facility in Ontario, Calif.-one of
the first UPS facilities to adopt NGVs-says
their NGVs are reliable, get great mileage
and provide plenty of power on the region's
notorious mountain roads like the Grapevine
and the Tejon Pass.
"They're also a great conversation piece," J.D.
told us. "People in the community see 'Natural
Gas Vehicle' on the side and ask us about it."
By using more natural gas, UPS reduces
emissions, while taking advantage of an
affordable fuel that powers a massive delivery
fleet traveling thousands of miles every week.
In ANGA's latest national ad, available in the transportation section of
www.thinkaboutit.org, J.D. explains why
he's proud of his company's commitment to
the environment as well as the communities
it serves and how NGVs are an important way
of showing that commitment.
