99 Cents Only adopts natural gas in fleet


City of Commerce, Calif. - 99 Cents Only Stores has opened an onsite fully operational compressed natural gas (CNG) filling station in the company's main distribution center. This is the final step in the company's plan in adopting a green approach to its private fleet operation.

During the past 18 months, 75% of 99 Cents Only’s fleet was converted from diesel to CNG. The 53 CNG trucks the company operates will drive approximately 3.7 million miles and will help reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions by 6,500 metric tons in the next seven years.

"Fifty-three of our trucks have converted to CNG making us the largest private retail Class 8 CNG fleet in California," said David Townsend, director of transportation.
