Propane Food Delivery At LAX

Not all the news out of the recent ACT Expo in Long Beach, Calif. was about electrification. Hacor, Inc., an in-flight airline catering services provider, announced it has purchased seven Ford F-750 delivery trucks fueled by propane autogas for use at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). The company serves multiple airlines delivering up to 15,000 airline meals per day at LAX.

“LAX will significantly benefit from our low emission catering trucks, as will the nearby communities that we are operating from and within,” said Jason Lee, general manager of Hacor. “The versatility and reliability of these propane vehicles allows us to operate our standard delivery and operating methods but with a low emission fuel.”

Each of Hacor’s vehicles is equipped with a Ford 6.8L V10 engine with a Roush CleanTech fuel system certified to 0.02 g/bhp-hr. Roush said the engine is 90 percent cleaner than the Environmental Protection Agency’s most stringent heavy-duty engine standard.

“Hacor’s new propane autogas vehicles emit fewer greenhouse gases, NOx and total hydrocarbon emissions, and virtually eliminate particulate matter,” said Todd Mouw, president of Roush CleanTech.

The vehicles are now in service and will fuel at existing public propane autogas stations.
