Chicago-based bakery products distributor Alpha Baking Company, Inc. has selected Penske Truck Leasing to serve as its commercial truck fleet maintenance service provider for its 2013 ROUSH CleanTech propane autogas powered Ford E-450 bread delivery trucks.

“After much research and testing the time has arrived for Alpha Baking to integrate propane autogas equipment into our fleet,” Bob McGuire, Alpha Vice President and Director of Logistics, says. “The technology is here and it is affordable.”

Penske Truck Leasing currently provides full-service truck leasing and maintenance to Alpha Baking’s traditionally fueled truck fleet and will now assume maintenance of these new alternative- fueled vehicles.

Alpha Baking introduced the 22 propane autogas trucks June 12 during a commemoration ceremony with Chicago Area Clean Cities Coalition at Alpha Baking’s North Aurora truck depot.
