Amazon upgrading its semi-truck fleet to run on natural gas

  • Amazon ordered over 700 compressed natural gas trucks.
  • The trucks will use engines provided by a joint venture between Cummins Inc and Westport Fuel Systems.
  • The company previously pledged to become carbon neutral by 2040.

Amazon has been exploring avenues to become carbon neutral by 2040 in support of the Climate Pledge commitment, according to its statement in October.  

The semi industry as a whole has been in a rush to move into green energy and ultimately become carbon neutral.
