The first of five Walmart heavy-duty natural gas vehicles made a trip from Indiana to California for the Advanced Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo in Anaheim, California. Powered by Cummins’ X15N 15-liter compressed natural gas (CNG) engine, the truck made stops along the way to refuel at Chevron CNG stations. Walmart has a goal to achieve zero emissions across global operations by 2040, which includes several initiatives within their Class 8 transportation fleet.
“‘Walmart transportation is focused on the continuous piloting of solutions that aren’t just changing the industry, but are having a lasting impact on the world,’ comments Fernando Cortes, senior vice president of transportation at Walmart. ‘We are proud to team with Cummins and Chevron to develop industry-leading advancements that pave toward a lower carbon future.'”
