Ryder System Inc. awarded Clean Energy a four-year fueling contract for a fleet of liquified natural gas (LNG) heavy-duty trucks that move goods for Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Kentucky, Inc., Toyota’s largest manufacturing facility in North America located in Georgetown, Ky.

Clean Energy will open a station in Georgetown to fuel the trucks that are expected to consume approximately 380,000 gasoline gallon equivalents (GGEs) of LNG each year.

Ryder has made sustainability a priority and has been a leader in expanding its offering of advanced vehicle technologies. Toyota has also rapidly expanded into alternative fuels and has encouraged its third-party carriers to move its goods in a more sustainable way.
