As part of the expansion of its facilities and service in San Antonio, Texas, UPS will add alternative fuel vehicles and a CNG fueling station. The project will add capacity for more than 150 more delivery vehicles – called “package cars” – increasing the building’s delivery fleet to more than 340.
UPS will also add 40 Class 8 Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) tractors that will be fueled by a new on-site CNG fueling station. Each tractor will displace approximately 25,000 gallons of diesel fuel each year with clean burning natural gas.
The expansion will add about 171,000 square feet, bringing the building’s footprint to more than 330,000 square feet on a site of more than 40 acres. The building’s team will continue to provide package pickup and delivery services during the project which is expected to be complete mid-2017.
