H&S Bakery Delivers Bread and Sustainability with Alt Fuel Vehicles
H&S Bakery, a long-standing provider of hearth-baked goods, unveiled its fleet of clean-operating alternatively fueled vehicles today.
Funded in part by a Maryland Clean Cities Coalition grant from the Maryland Energy Administration, the autogas fleet will reduce carbon monoxide emissions by 60 percent, nitrogen oxide by 20 percent and greenhouse gases by up to 25 percent compared to gasoline. Over its lifetime, each of H&S Bakery’s ROUSH CleanTech Ford F-59 trucks will eliminate about 117,000 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions from the company’s carbon footprint.
“We want our customers and community to know that we are investing in them and working hard to meet our sustainability goals,” said Chuck Paterakis, vice president of transportation and logistics for H&S Baking. “With propane autogas, we’re doing just that with a domestically produced fuel that lowers emissions across our delivery area.”
