UPS to Deploy 600 CNG Delivery Trucks with Landi Renzo Fuel Systems
Landi Renzo announced it will supply the fuel systems for 600 CNG-powered UPS package delivery vehicles. The announcement follows UPS’s commitment to purchase and deploy 1,400 new CNG vehicles over the next year. The new trucks deployed will consist of approximately 800 tractors and 600 of their familiar brown package delivery vehicles, built on a Freightliner Custom Chassis (FCCC).
Landi Renzo USA will participate as the CARB & EPA certified fuel system provider for the roll out of the 600 natural gas delivery trucks. The trucks will feature Landi Renzo’s fuel system technology on the GM 6.0L powertrain.
“After several years of conducting testing through pilot programs, an order like this validates the trust that a global company like UPS has in our alternative fuel products,” says Andrea Landi, President of Landi Renzo USA.
The delivery trucks will be built using Morgan Olsen bodies and the fuel systems will be installed by Green Alternative Systems.
UPS says it will deploy the new CNG vehicles across 15 cities: Atlanta and Doraville, Georgia; Charleston, West Virginia; Dallas, Texas; Denver, Colorado; Lexington, Kentucky; Port Allen, Shreveport and New Orleans, Louisiana; Lenexa, Kansas; Montgomery, Alabama; Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; New Stanton, Pennsylvania; Richmond and Roanoke, Virginia.
