Agility Fuel Systems said that UPS has ordered 445 of its 160 DGE Behind-the-Cab CNG fuel systems for delivery in 2015.
With this new order UPS will be operating almost 1,600 heavy duty trucks equipped with CNG or LNG fuel systems. These trucks, once fully deployed, are projected to run more than 230 million miles annually, Agility said in a statement.
Agility has worked closely with UPS to develop and engineer custom specifications for their applications and has provided installation, training and in-servicing support to enable deployment and rapid expansion of natural gas in their heavy duty truck fleet, according to the statement.
The company has also supported the UPS natural gas rollout with its portable fueling solution, enabling new LNG trucks to be fueled at the production plant where they are built and quickly placed into service, it added.
