Sunny Delight CNG Fleet to Cut 400,000 Gallons of Diesel

Sunny Delight Beverages has put into service a fleet of three compressed natural gas vehicles for distribution in southern California, in markets including Los Angeles, Mira Loma, Carson and Riverside.

The move is expected to cut about 400,000 gallons of diesel fuel in 2012, and to cut well-to-wheel greenhouse gas by 23 percent versus diesel-powered engines.

Transportation management and logistics provider Transplace said that it executed a transportation plan that focused on keeping costs down for the beverage manufacturer. The companies have a five-year arrangement. Transplace manages the carriers and the fueling options within the network, and Glacier Transportation deployed the fleet.

A number of companies are testing a transition to CNG fleets. In January, AT&T ordered 1,200 Chevrolet Express CNG cargo vans for delivery to its service centers nationwide, in General Motors’ largest ever order of CNG vehicles. Refuse collection firm Waste Management announced a pilot program across four states to introduce natural-gas powered Rotopress waste collection trailers.

Also, Veolia ES Solid Waste revved up Indiana’s first fleet of CNG powered refuse trucks in April.
