Ryder Moves Toyota Parts with Clean Energy LNG

| USA, Newport Beach CA

Clean Energy truck stopClean Energy Fuels Corp. has been awarded a four-year fueling contract for a fleet of liquefied natural gas (LNG) heavy-duty trucks that move goods for Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Kentucky, Inc., Toyota’s largest manufacturing facility in North America located in Georgetown, Kentucky. The contract was issued by Ryder System Inc., a leader in commercial fleet management, dedicated transportation, and supply chain solutions.

Clean Energy will open a station in Georgetown to fuel the trucks that are expected to consume approximately 380,000 gasoline gallon equivalents (GGEs) each year.

Ryder has made sustainability a priority and has been a leader in expanding its offering of advanced vehicle technologies. Toyota has also rapidly expanded into alternative fuels and has encouraged its third-party carriers to move its goods in a more sustainable way. LNG produces less emissions than diesel.

Ryder fleet vehicles“At Ryder, we have the opportunity and ability to continually reduce the environmental impacts of our operations and those of the customers we serve,” said Chris Nordh Sr. Director – Advanced Vehicle Technologies & Energy Products at Ryder. “LNG as a transportation fuel helps us reduce our vehicle emissions, and we’re happy to partner with Clean Energy to continue our dedication to sustainability solutions.”

“We are seeing a trend in shippers selecting carriers that demonstrate a commitment to the environment,” said Chad Lindholm, Vice President at Clean Energy. “Natural gas is a perfect fit for carriers because not only is it cleaner, it’s abundant, is available today, performs every bit as well as diesel, and makes sense economically.”

Clean Energy Fuels Corp., an NGV Global sponsor, is the leading provider of natural gas fuel for transportation in North America.

Ryder Systems is a member of NGVAmerica.
