Brown Going Green

John Davis

UPSShipping giant UPS has announced that 366 of its ground support vehicles at its worldwide air hub in Louisville, Kentucky will be running on biodiesel.

This story in the Louisville (KY) Courier-Journal says the shipper is getting a federal grant to get this project off the ground:

A $515,000 federal grant is offsetting some of the cost of building the infrastructure for biodiesel at the airport, UPS said. The shipping company plans to start using the biodiesel early next year.

A visit to the UPS Sustainability web site ( shows this is not a new trend for the company as it has been using some alternative fuels since the 1930s.

So the next time you hear somebody say “What can Brown do for you?” you’ll know they’re going green to help all of us.
