Third-party logistics provider Kane is Able is adding seven compressed natural gas (CNG) trucks from Volvo Trucks.
The trucks will be delivered from Volvo’s New River Valley assembly plant in Dublin, VA. They are Volvo VNL daycab models feature a 12L Cummins-Westport ISX12 G engine. Each truck’s range is approximately 425 mi. between fueling.
The CNG-powered vehicles will produce up to 20% fewer greenhouse gas emissions and significantly less smog-producing pollutants than their petroleum-fueled counterparts, Volvo said.
“Kane has a long-standing commitment to sustainable operations,” said Pete Westermann, president and CEO of Kane. “Volvo Trucks is an acknowledged industry leader in natural gas-powered vehicle technology. Adding these natural gas trucks to our fleet makes good fiscal and environmental sense.”
Delivery of the trucks is expected by August.
The trucks will operate out of Kane’s Scranton, PA, facility.
