M&M Cartage has received delivery of its first dedicated compressed natural gas powered truck, supplied by Kentucky Truck Sales.
The 2013 Freightliner is powered by a Cummins ISL GM2 9L engine. Agility Fuel Systems provided the 100-gallon behind-the-cab fuel system for the unit.
Don Hayden, president of the Louisville, Ky.-based regional truckload carrier, noted the addition of the truck to company’s fleet of 170 semi-trucks with 450 trailers is for evaluation purposes.
“We would like to operate 100 CNG trucks over the next four years,” Hayden said in a written statement.
During the evaluation period, the truck will run various routes in metro Louisville and across Kentucky.
