UPS Gets Fuel Cell Delivery From DaimlerChrysler

June 28, 2004

DaimlerChrysler, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and United Parcel Service (UPS) have partnered to put fuel cell technology on the road in a real business world situation, according to the SolarAccess Web site. UPS uses an F-Cell fuel cell vehicle, based on a Mercedes-Benz A-Class and powered by a Ballard fuel cell, on daily express-delivery routes in southeast Michigan. "It's been a great experience, and I love telling my customers that their package was delivered with zero emissions," UPS driver Charmaine Farrell said. Farrell's vehicle is fueled at a hydrogen station at the EPA National Vehicle and Fuel Emissions Laboratory. The program enables organizations to gain operational experience with a fuel cell fleet vehicle and hydrogen re-fueling station. Substantial data in fuel economy has already been gathered from the test, which started in February 2004.
