DDA Transport, a New Hampshire-based contractor for the U.S. Postal Service (USPS), has added six propane-fueled Ford trucks to its fleet.

“​​As a supplier to the U.S. Postal Service, we are continually striving to find ways to protect the environment through sustainability efforts,” says Dwayne Andreasen, president of DDA Transport. “Our fuel consumption is our biggest environmental concern, so the ability to lower this impact through propane autogas helps us achieve our short- and long-term goals.”

The company has more than 160 vehicles in its fleet and the delivery trucks travel 75,000 to 90,000 miles per year.

DDA anticipates saving $25,000 in fuel costs and up to an additional $15,000 in maintenance and uptime costs for each truck annually compared to its diesel models. Andreasen says cost savings will be used to add more propane vehicles to the DDA fleet. The company’s goal is to achieve a 50/50 mix of diesel and propane autogas within the next few years.

Ferrellgas has partnered with DDA on a long-term contract that includes fuel and the installation of an onsite propane station. “We need onsite fueling because our trucks run on very strict schedules and are typically running from the early morning hours until the late evening,” Andreasen says.

“Propane offers a readily available, affordable and uncomplicated solution to reduce emissions,”  says Todd Mouw, executive vice president at Roush CleanTech, a manufacturer of advanced clean transportation technology.

The new Ford trucks are powered by Roush CleanTech’s propane technology. All Roush CleanTech propane products are certified to the ultra-low NOx level of 0.02/bhp-hr, making them 90 percent cleaner than the strictest federal emissions standard.
