Ryder Fleet Tops 100 Million Natural Gas Vehicle Miles

| August 9, 2016

Ryder Fleet Tops 100 Million Natural Gas Vehicle Miles Ryder System has announced its fleet of natural gas vehicles (NGVs) has surpassed 100 million miles of operations, making it, according to the company, “the first commercial fleet outsourcing provider to reach this significant milestone.”  Noted Robert Sanchez, Ryder Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, “When companies outsource their transportation and logistics operations to us, they not only get cost efficiency, but also the benefits of our environmental expertise, infrastructure, maintenance, and industry-leading partnerships.”  Natural gas is known for reducing emissions and fuel consumption.  That’s on the usage side.  On the extraction side, natural gas is associated with fracking — and that is not always a clean business without environmental risk.  Fracking chemicals and wastewater fluid is often brought back to the surface and contains powerful chemicals as well as naturally occurring radioactive materials and metals not typically found above ground.  Beverage Container Recycler, UBCR, also announced today that it would be renewing its natural gas vehicle lease with Ryder for its entire truck fleet, becoming the first Ryder customer to transition from first generation NGVs to the latest available technology.  Michigan-based beverage container recycling company UBCR has operated its Ryder NGV fleet for more than 7 million miles since 2011.
