Leading national fleet operators announced the formation of the Natural Gas Vehicle (NGV) Fleet Forum, a new membership organization dedicated to advancing the use of natural gas in the US transportation sector. The effort was announced at the 2011 Alternative Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo, a showcase of clean, alternative fuel vehicles.
The NGV Fleet Forum will provide a members-only venue for fleet operators to share technical expertise, collaborate on product development and procurement, and support other members in the successful deployment of NGVs. This forum is a member-based and directed organization with operational support provided by Gladstein, Neandross & Associates (GNA), a national consulting firm active in the natural gas fleet vehicle sector.
Membership in the NGV Fleet Forum is comprised of companies that have existing NGV operations as well as those that are considering natural gas for their fleet.
Charter members in the NGV Fleet Forum include Sysco Corporation, Ryder System Inc, UPS, PepsiCo/Frito-Lay, Paper Transport, Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority, Sempra Energy Utilities, Border Valley Trading, HayDay Farms, and Chesapeake Energy.
The NGV Fleet Forum is open to members representing all types of fleets. Member representatives include executive level operational fleet personnel responsible for procurement, maintenance, and operations.
