Clean Energy to deliver compressed natural gas to UPS Canada

Clean Energy Fuels

Clean Energy, one of the undisputed leaders of low-carbon fuels for the transportation market, announced this Wednesday it will supply compressed natural gas (CNG) to the Union Parcel Service (UPS) Canada. Particularly for UPS’ delivery fleet vehicles in Ontario.

Firstly, the transition for cleaner fuels for UPS is not new. The company has converted 25 package delivery vans to operate on CNG; which is a lower carbon alternative to gasoline. Clean Energy operates the station in London, Ontario, from where the CNG will flow to UPS vehicles.

Moreover, the station will provide around 2 million liters, or around 525,000 gasoline gallon equivalent, of CNG under a multi-year agreement. The trucks from UPS operating with CNG from the company will reduce 700 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions. The equivalent of planting 11,667 trees, removing 152 cars from the road, and recycling 281 tons of landfill waste.

On the other hand, Clean Energy will deliver the CNG alongside its industry partner Union Energy Solutions; which is an unregulated affiliate of Enbridge. Cynthia Hansen, Executive VP and President of Gas Distribution & Storage, Enbridge Inc, said about the matter. “We are pleased to help the medium and heavy transportation industries that are working hard to reduce emission.”

She also remarked. “CNG is a cleaner-burning solution for fleet and transit vehicles that can immediately reduce emissions by up to 20 percent as compared to gasoline or diesel while also reducing fuel costs.”

At the same time, Chad Lindholm, senior vice president, Clean Energy, commented. “UPS has led the way in sustainable transportation for many years and we’re pleased to partner with them to expand their clean natural gas fleet in Canada; that UPS continues the migration of its package cars to CNG in Canada and applauds their sustainability efforts.”

Finally, Floyd Bristol, Vice President of Automotive, UPS Canada, said. “CNG is an important part of UPS’s strategy to increase its use of alternative fuel and reduce our emissions. As a transportation company, we have a responsibility to put sustainability at the core of our operations, and adding these new vehicles to our growing alternative fuel fleet in Canada will have a measurable impact.”
