Transportation & Logistics International - Spring 2017 - 81

FLEET MANAGEMENT
Trucking magazine named Long Beach
as one of the top-50 heavy-duty green
fleets in the country.
Last year, the city also recognized the
bureau with a Civic Innovation Award
for its use of renewables and telematics, which provides data on a vehicle's
location, operation and how much time
it idles during the day. "If you use all of
that data, analyze it and act on it, you
can reduce fuel consumption and pollution," Berlenbach says, adding that this
philosophy has been adopted throughout his bureau's fleet.
Green Changes
The Fleet Services Bureau's recent
projects include converting its diesel- and natural gas-fueled vehicles to
renewables. Renewables now account

for 52 percent of its overall fuel use annually. It previously used liquid natural
gas for its refuse and sweeper vehicles,
and now is converting to compressed
natural gas (CNG).
The city is constructing a CNG timefill station for this change. "We'll open
it here in a few weeks," Berlenbach
reports, adding that the fuel enables
vehicles to produce fewer emissions
and incur lower costs as well as avoid
manual refueling.
The bureau also recently purchased
CNG pick-up trucks and medium and
utility vehicles to reduce its carbon footprint. "We've also got a hydrogen fuel
cell car in our fleet motor pool," he adds,
noting that the bureau is testing the car.
"We're looking to see how suitable it is
for our use and we survey our customers

to get feedback on it," Berlenbach says.
"It's also a good opportunity to let city
staff, especially in a motor pool application, see what's on the market."
Making Updates
The Fleet Services Bureau recently
started updating its fuel management
system in the city of Long Beach. The
bureau, Berlenbach explains, manages
18 sites, of which only 11 dispense fuel.
Velocity Vehicle Group provides intelligent transportation solutions to fleets and municipalities like the City of
Long Beach Fleet Services Bureau by providing commercial
vehicles that employ clean and green technologies. Velocity Vehicle Group is one of the fastest growing privately
held companies within the LA Basin and one of the largest
commercial truck dealership groups in the Southwest.
VVG provides services in California, Nevada, Arizona and
Hawaii for new and used vehicles, parts, service, collision
repairs, truck rental and commercial lending services. VVG
congratulates the City of Long Beach on their success and
forward thinking leadership.
