National Clean Fleets Partner: Frito-Lay
Frito-Lay is aiming to become the most fuel-efficient fleet in the country. In 2011, the company deployed 176 all-electric medium-duty delivery trucks, eliminating the need for 500,000 gallons of fuel per year and cutting emissions by 75% compared to diesel trucks. In addition, Frito-Lay's fleet includes more than 600 hybrid electric sales cars and rapidly expanding use of propane and natural gas. Additional significant fuel savings are being realized through driver training and use of GPS.
