DALLAS, TEXAS – Transplace, a provider of transportation management services and logistics technology, and Sunny Delight Beverages Co. announced the successful implementation of a compressed natural gas (CNG) fleet in Southern California. The CNG fleet, deployed by Glacier Transportation, has effectively lowered greenhouse gas emissions and reduced fuel costs for the beverage company, according to Sunny Delight.
The five-year arrangement transports Sunny Delight products to customers across the Southern California market to cities such as Los Angeles, Mira Loma, Carson and Riverside.
Transplace has been a long-time provider for Sunny Delight, and this newest sustainability partnership came to light during the 2011 Shipper Symposium, an annual Transplace-hosted event focused on sharing innovation and best practices between Transplace customers, partners and industry leaders.
Clean Energy estimates a greenhouse gas savings of 23 percent on CNG versus diesel powered engines when looking at the fuel from extraction to tailpipe. In addition, Sunny Delight’s network stands to save an estimated 400,000 gallons of diesel fuel in 2012 due to the conversion to CNG in Southern California.
