U.S. freight hauler Matheson Trucking, Inc., has one of the Top 50 Green Fleets in the nation for 2016 by Heavy Duty according to Trucking (HDT) magazine, an award recognizing trucking companies that are leading the industry in the adoption of green, sustainable practices, policies and technologies. The recognition follows the bestowal of a Natural Gas Vehicles for America (NGVAmerica) achievement award last month for its ongoing fuel transition program.
As one of the country’s five largest contract carriers for the U.S. Postal Service (USPS), Matheson is committed to lowering greenhouse gas emissions by converting its fleet to use compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG). The company supports the USPS sustainability goal of reducing diesel use by 20% by the year 2020 as well as industry plans designed to expand the Natural Gas Highway by creating a series of LNG fueling stations across North America for the country’s long-haul trucking fleet.
“Matheson is dedicated to decreasing diesel fuel consumption on routes we serve,” said Joshua Matheson, Vice President of Operations. “We are pleased to be honored by the editors of HDT for our ongoing efforts to improve air quality by lowering greenhouse gas emissions leading to a clean energy environment.”
