Autogas trucks will deliver parcels for U.S. Postal Service
For the first time ever, some U.S. Postal Service (USPS) packages are being delivered via low-emission Autogas trucks. McAbee Trucking, a freight shipping and trucking company, purchased eight Ford F-750 delivery trucks fuelled by LPG. The vehicles are used for contracted parcel delivery routes between USPS locations in North and South Carolina.
“As a business owner, I continually look for ways to add safety, improve day-to-day operations, advocate for environmental preservation and save money,” said Lisa McAbee, owner of McAbee Trucking. “Our new Autogas fleet vehicles accomplish all these goals.”
This technology has progressed to the point where emissions are reduced to near zero. Each of McAbee’s trucks is equipped with a Ford 6.8L V10 engine and ROUSH CleanTech LPG fuel system, which is 90% cleaner than the Environmental Protection Agency’s most stringent heavy-duty emission standard.
“McAbee Trucking’s new trucks provide the power and range needed to make long-distance deliveries, with the added benefits of cost and emission savings,” said Todd Mouw, president of ROUSH CleanTech.
To fuel its new fleet, the company will install an Autogas station onsite. Until then, McAbee Trucking has onsite “mobile fuelling,” where its local LPG supplier fuels the vehicles from a tanker truck. For more information, please check this link.
