DHL Express Launches 100 Propane Autogas Vans for Pickup and Delivery Fleet
DHL Express, the world’s leading international express services provider, announced the launch of 100 pickup and delivery vans fueled by clean, safe and economical propane autogas. The new Ford E-250 cargo vans, each equipped with a ROUSH CleanTech dedicated liquid propane autogas fuel system, will be on the road by late August 2012 and will support DHL Express pickup and delivery service within California, Florida, Georgia, Missouri and Texas.
The new alternative fuel vehicles join other propane vehicles already operating for DHL Express in Ohio, Tennessee and Louisiana. They all complement Deutsche Post DHL’s GOGREEN program and its target to improve the company’s worldwide carbon efficiency 30 percent by 2020, using 2007 levels as a baseline. Through the use of propane autogas, each alternative fuel vehicle saves over 22,587 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions each year.
