Anheuser-Busch revealed it is replacing all 97 diesel-fueled tractors in its St. Louis fleet with new CNG fueled tractors.
The St. Louis replacement marks Anheuser-Busch’s second full brewery fleet transition, following last year’s replacement of 66 tractors in Houston. Approximately 30% of Anheuser-Busch’s heavy-haul dedicated tractors now run on cleaner-burning natural gas.
The new, Freightliner-produced, natural gas-fueled tractors will be filled at a recently opened CNG station operated by U.S. Gain, near the St. Louis brewery.
Amerit will provide maintenance support at a nearby facility, recently retrofitted to accommodate the new CNG fleet. J.B. Hunt, a transportation provider, will continue to manage Anheuser-Busch’s St. Louis dedicated fleet of tractors and drivers.
Agility will provide the new CNG fleet with logistical support and Element will oversee tractor leasing.
