Sheehy Mail Contractors partnered with Love’s Trillium CNG after recently expanding its fleet of natural gas vehicles. The mail carrier entered into a contract with Trillium and now stops at the Trillium CNG refueling station in Omaha, Nebraska.
Sheehy’s NGV fleet expansion in Omaha is a team effort across multiple agencies and sectors. Metropolitan Utilities District manages the CNG Fleet Fund Program, which helps offset the incremental cost of purchasing natural gas vehicles. Sheehy applied to this program and was awarded incentives to purchase four new Freightliner CNG trucks. Since 2013, the CNG Fleet Fund Program assisted in the purchase of more than 110 vehicles in the Omaha market.
“Fueling a CNG truck is clean and simple,” said John Sheehy, CEO of Sheehy Enterprises. “We also know it is the right thing to do for the environment, and we promote that to our customers and employees.”
Sheehy was an early adopter of CNG, beginning the conversion process in 2013. The company has driven 35 million miles on CNG. The alternative fuel accounts for 92 percent of all fuel purchased by Sheehy Mail Contractors.
