"The increasing costs and complexity associated with meeting diesel emissions is helping the shift to offer gasoline and alternative fuel engines," Tubbert added. "This collaboration reflects that shift. We also wanted, in large part, to offer the customer more choices and to focus on clean air as a major policy objective."
The CNG-fueled terminal tractor is the latest product of the partnership between TICO and PSI, which began in 2016 when the two companies joined forces on designs to integrate customized gasoline and alternative-fuel engines into TICO's Pro-Spotter terminal tractors. Their first collaboration was a new propane-fueled terminal tractor, launched at the 2016 Alternative Clean Transportation ("ACT") Expo.
"We're excited about the growth of our relationship with TICO," said
