Pivotal LNG, a subsidiary of AGL Resources, has announced that it has signed a second agreement with UPS to supply liquefied natural gas (LNG) to UPS fleet operations in Jacksonville, Florida.
Pivotal first entered into a supply agreement with UPS in April 2013, under which Pivotal is providing LNG to UPS facilities in Nashville and Knoxville, Tennessee.
Steve Cittadine, president – storage and fuels, AGL Resources, commented: "We are very pleased to expand the LNG supply service we provide to UPS. We will now serve three UPS facilities, and we look forward to continuing to fulfill their LNG needs for years to come".
LNG as transportation fuel
UPS recently announced that it is committed to expanding its use of LNG as a transportation fuel. The company is building LNG fuelling stations at several of its facilities and is in the process of replacing a large number of its diesel-fuelled tractors with LNG-fuelled tractors.
"Our tractors operate on high-mile routes in the southern regions," explained Mike Casteel, director of fleet procurement for UPS. "Pivotal is providing the LNG fuel supply we require to meet the needs of our LNG tractor fleet in key locations."
AGL Resources, the parent company of Pivotal LNG, is one of the largest operators of liquefaction facilities in the US. The parent company owns and operates seven natural gas distribution utilities and several LNG peak-shaving facilities throughout the US. "Pivotal LNG is uniquely positioned to offer consistent fuel supply to its customers in several regions offering," added Cittadine.
