Ryder Systems today announced that it has launched a new alternative fuels website at www.ryder.com/alternativefuels to help customers and fleet owners better understand how they can reduce transportation costs, while meeting sustainability objectives.
In addition to explaining the various fleet technologies, the site provides one-stop access to the latest news on Ryder alternative fuel products, programs, and initiatives.
“This new online resource is part of Ryder’s ongoing effort to drive innovation across the industry and extend our leadership in alternative fuels,” said John Diez, Senior Vice President of Asset Management, Fleet Management Solutions for Ryder.
Ryder is the leader in alternative fuels for the commercial truck leasing and rental industry. In 2010, The San Bernardino Associated Governments (SANBAG) selected Ryder as its fleet partner in a ground-breaking natural gas project in Southern California — the first of its kind to deploy natural gas vehicles into a large commercial truck leasing and rental operation. The $38.7 million project is being funded as part of a joint public/private industry partnership between the U.S. Department of Energy, the California Energy Commission, and Ryder. The project includes 202 heavy duty natural gas vehicles and three strategically located maintenance shops in Rancho Dominguez, Orange, and Fontana. When fully implemented, the project will displace more than 1.5 million gallons of diesel annually with 100 percent domestically produced low-carbon natural gas.
