Leading national fleet operators have announced the formation of the Natural Gas Vehicle (NGV) Fleet Forum, a new membership organization dedicated to advancing the use of clean, domestic and low-cost natural gas in the U.S. transportation sector.

The effort was announced at the 2011 Alternative Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo, the largest showcase of clean, alternative fuel vehicles in the U.S. this year.

The NGV Fleet Forum will provide a members-only venue for fleet operators to share technical expertise, collaborate on product development and procurement, and support other members in the successful deployment of natural gas vehicles.

The NGV Fleet Forum is a member-based and directed organization with operational support provided by Gladstein, Neandross & Associates (GNA), a leading national consulting firm active in the natural gas fleet vehicle sector.

"With continued high petroleum fuel prices, increased access to plentiful resources of domestic low-cost natural gas, and additional natural gas vehicle product being made available by the national automobile and truck manufacturers, the development of this NGV Fleet Forum comes at a time when the natural gas vehicle market is set to make a significant surge," said Erik Neandross, chief executive officer of Gladstein, Neandross and Associates. "We are extremely excited to be a part of this ground-breaking and progressive group and look forward to helping fleet operators more aggressively and successfully deploy NGVs in their operations."

Membership in the NGV Fleet Forum is comprised of companies that have existing natural gas vehicle operations as well as those that are considering natural gas for their fleet.

Charter members in the NGV Fleet Forum include Sysco Corporation, Ryder System, Inc., UPS, PepsiCo./Frito-Lay, Paper Transport, Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority, Sempra Energy Utilities, Border Valley Trading, HayDay Farms and Chesapeake Energy.

The NGV Fleet Forum is open to members representing all types of fleets. Member representatives include executive level operational fleet personnel responsible for procurement, maintenance and operations.
