Renewable fuels and electrification for logistics

UPS is using alternative fuel vehicles under real-world operating conditions and currently operates one of the largest private alternative fuel fleets in the industry - more than 3,150 alternative fuel and advanced technology low-emissions vehicles, including all-electrics, electric hybrids, hydraulic hybrids, propane, compressed natural gas, liquefied natural gas and biomethane. The company has a rolling laboratory for alternative fuels development which tests prototypes on the road. The company works with manufacturers, the EPA and other government agencies to pilot projects before new vehicles are ready for commercial deployment.
