Nestlé Waters North America increases propane autogas fleet

March 4, 2016 By    

Nestlé Waters North America committed to add 155 medium-duty beverage delivery trucks fueled by propane autogas to its fleet.

The Ford F-650 trucks will be outfitted with Roush CleanTech propane autogas fuel systems with 45-usable gallon fuel tanks. According to Roush CleanTech, the autogas fuel system meets California Air Resources Board and Environmental Protection Agency compliance.

Nestlé Waters North America, the largest bottled water company in North America, plans to deploy the autogas delivery trucks in April. The company already has 30 Ford F-650 trucks that run on autogas in its fleet.

“We’ve been running propane autogas vehicles since 2014,” says Bill Ardis, national fleet manager for Nestlé Waters North America, in a press release. “Because of the proven emissions reductions and cost savings, we knew it was the right choice to expand our fleet with this domestically produced alternative fuel.”

Nestlé Waters North America says its new autogas trucks will be used in areas across the United States, including New York City, Boston, Dallas, Houston, Chicago, Philadelphia and Baltimore. The company pays an average of $1 per gallon for autogas.
