Resources explore how delivery fleets can achieve financial sustainability alongside environmental sustainability
The Propane Education & Research Council launched a new webpage dedicated to educating delivery fleets on the ways propane autogas can help fleet owners with their service and sustainability.
On the new webpage, Propane.com/Delivery-Trucks, visitors will find a variety of resources, infographics, case studies, and videos detailing how to get started with propane autogas, the benefits of the energy source, and examples from their peers. Notably, the site outlines the emissions reductions and cost benefits that allow delivery fleets to accelerate decarbonization while saving money.
On the webpage, fleet owners can access a free, downloadable brochure detailing real-world data and testimonials from fleets across the country. As the examples show, many fleet owners save up to 60 percent on costs compared to diesel by transitioning to propane autogas. They also reduce carbon emissions by several metric tons over the life of the vehicle.
More than 60,000 propane autogas commercial vehicles are on the road today, including fleets that serve a range of delivery needs. It is widely used in both urban and rural communities, allowing fleets to run routes over 300 miles on a single refuel. With affordable and customizable infrastructure, fleet owners can work with their propane supplier to develop a propane autogas solution specific to their fleet.
