Ryder's Natural Gas Fleet Surpasses 15 Million Miles

Its fleet of 320 natural gas vehicles has surpassed 15 million miles and replaced approximately 2.3 million gallons of diesel fuel

Commercial transportation and supply chain management company Ryder Systems, Inc., recently achieved a significant milestone with its fleet of 320 natural gas vehicles surpassing 15 million miles operating in 37 customer operations in California, New York, Arizona, Michigan, and Louisiana.

"We believe natural gas is the most viable alternative fuel solution for commercial trucking because it is clean, efficient, cheap, and abundant," said Ryder Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Robert Sanchez in the press release. "It is good for our customers, as well as our communities and the country."

Earlier this year, Ryder opened the first natural gas fueling stations in its North American network to serve both the general public and Ryder lease and rental customers. The Liquefied to Compressed Natural Gas (LCNG) stations are located at two of Ryder’s maintenance and fueling facilities in Orange, Calif., and Fontana, Calif., – key facilities serving the Southern California region.
