  • The retail giant will partner with Cummins Inc CMI and will receive new 15-liter Natural Gas Engines and add them to a few of its trucks.
  • It has also secured agreements with Chevron Corp CVX to supply its trucks with CNG linked to renewable natural gas.
  • The company also plans to test capabilities and performance of Capacity’s second-generation hydrogen fuel cell yard truck.
