USPS contract carrier Matheson adds new natural gas tractors to postal fleet
Matheson Trucking has added 25 new compressed natural gas (CNG) and 12 liquified natural gas (LNG) tractors to the fleet of vehicles used by its Postal Services Division. The company introduced 12 LNG Kenworth T880 day cabs in Oakland, CA., in January and has completed the deployment of 17 CNG Kenworth T680’s in Boise, ID.
Matheson is in the process of taking delivery of eight additional CNG T680 sleeper cabs for its Los Angeles (LAX) to Seattle (SEA) runs.
The new vehicles bring Matheson’s tractor fleet total across all divisions to 262, excluding any rental tractors the company has in its nationwide network.
Matheson Postal Services is among the top 10 largest contract carriers for the United States Postal Service (USPS), providing dedicated local, intermediate, and long haul transportation services. In recent years, Matheson’s area of operation has expanded from the Western United States to border-to-border and coast-to-coast.
