Agility Fuel Systems, a designer and producer of natural gas fuel storage and delivery systems for heavy duty trucks and buses, reports that that UPS has ordered its Behind-the-Cab CNG fuel systems for delivery in Q3 2016.

UPS will now be operating over 1,700 heavy duty trucks equipped with Agility natural gas fuel systems.

The fuel system features four Hexagon Composites cylinders which are carbon fiber wrapped and neck-mounted with anti-spin design to eliminate tank rotation that can stress fuel lines. It also has an aircraft-grade aluminum structure mounted on rubber isolators to reduce stress on components ensuring maximum durability.

‘Agility's vision is to transform the transportation world by designing the most innovative, clean natural gas systems in the market today to ensure a more sustainable future,’ said Kathleen Ligocki, Chief Executive Officer of Agility Fuel Systems.
