UPS rolls out 40 new zero-emissions delivery trucks in CA

July 29, 2013

The UPS San Bernardino Distribution Center unveiled one of the largest deployments of zero-emissions delivery trucks last week.

A partnership that includes Electric Vehicles International, UPS and the South Coast Air Quality Management District, as well as representatives of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, West Coast Collaborative, California Energy Commission and the California Air Resources Board, celebrated the arrival of the 40 new zero-emissions delivery trucks at the distribution center on July 16.

In attendance at the unveiling was Chino Mayor Dennis Yates, who said he was especially proud that the 40 zero-emissions delivery trucks would be based in San Bernardino, according to the Redlands Daily Facts.

“Residents of the Inland Empire continue to suffer from polluted, air and we are sitting right in the middle of it,” Yates said. “This is the kind of public/private cost sharing that will help us support public health and economic recovery.”
