UPS to Power Fleets with Renewable Natural Gas

UPS announced it will supply its fleet in Memphis, TN, and Jackson, MS, with an estimated 15 million diesel gallon gas equivalents of renewable natural gas (RNG) as part of a multi-year agreement with Memphis Light, Gas and Water and Atmos Energy Marketing.
