Ryder signs two CNG truck lease agreements

Ryder System said that it has signed deals for its natural gas vehicles with two customers in Arkansas, Alpha Packaging and Boyd Metals Transportation.

The CNG vehicles for both Alpha Packaging and Boyd Metals Transportation will be maintained by Ryder at its Fort Smith, Arkansas. service facility, which is being engineered to meet the unique compliance requirements for natural gas, the company said in a statement.

Alpha Packaging has signed a full-service lease agreement for seven compressed natural gas tractors. The CNG vehicles will replace current Ryder leased diesel powered vehicles to support Alpha Packaging’s sustainability initiatives. Alpha Packaging will use the CNG vehicles to support its deliveries to all areas within 300 miles of its Greenwood, Arkansas manufacturing facility.

To support the new CNG fleet, Alpha Packaging is building an on-site natural gas fuel station at its location. This on-site CNG fuel station will allow its drivers to conveniently fill the trucks overnight in order to gain full-range tank capacity and improve productivity during the day when they need to make deliveries.

Boyd Metals Transportation has also signed a full-service lease agreement for seven CNG tractors. The CNG vehicles will replace current Ryder leased diesel powered vehicles in Boyd Metals Transportation’s delivery fleet.
