UPS has awarded a contract to TruStar Energy to build and maintain 12 new compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling stations for the delivery company, TruStar has announced.

UPS had previously announced plans to invest $100 million in CNG fueling stations, vehicle purchases, and CNG infrastructure to diversify its fuel sources and reduce its environmental impact. This investment builds on the company's existing 18 CNG fueling stations. 

TruStar Energy will build the CNG stations in Amarillo, Texas; Chattanooga, Tenn.; Columbia, S.C.; El Paso, Texas; Fort Worth, Texas; Kansas City, Kan.; Phoenix, Ariz.; Reno, Nev.; San Antonio, Texas; Tifton, Ga.; Trinidad, Colo., and Willow Grove, Pa.

UPS plans on adding new CNG tractors to be deployed in these cities. The tractors will be manufactured by Kenworth, while Agility and Quantum Fuel Systems will provide the CNG storage systems.

In 2015, TruStar Energy built 15 CNG fueling stations for UPS. UPS is working to meet its goal of logging one billion miles with its alternative fuel and advanced technology fleet by the end of 2017.
