Ryder’s Natural Gas Fleet Gets to 20 Million Green Miles

MIAMI, FL — Ryder System has travelled over 20 million miles with its fleet of over 500 natural gas vehicles. The fleet is made up of liquefied natural gas and compressed natural gas tractors serving over 40 customer operations in California, New York, Texas, Arizona, Michigan, Utah, Georgia, and Louisiana.

Since deploying its natural gas vehicle program in 2011, Ryder has replaced about 3.1 million gallons of diesel fuel with domestically produced natural gas and reduced emissions by more than 559,000 MTCO2e (metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent) emissions.

In addition to making natural gas vehicles available for rent or lease, Ryder’s “Flex-to-Green Lease” solution is designed to ease the transition to a greener fleet. Businesses that opt for Ryder’s Flex-to-Green Lease start out with a diesel-powered vehicle and then have the option to convert to a natural gas vehicle at any time following the first full year of the lease. Flex-to-Green customers enjoy all the maintenance and service benefits of a standard Ryder Full Service Lease, which includes substitute vehicles during unexpected downtime.

Ryder’s natural gas vehicle offering also includes a selection of light- and medium-duty compressed natural gas vehicles. The CNG trucks range in gross vehicle weight from 16,000 to 33,000 pounds and are ideal for city delivery applications.
