Berres Brothers Coffee Roasters Bringing Propane Vans into Fleet

Charter Fuels, a partner in the Alliance AutoGas network, is helping Berres Brothers Coffee Roasters switch Ford E-250 vans to propane autogas to reduce their fleet’s environmental impact. Running the delivery vehicles on autogas will displace approximately 6,667 gallons of gasoline annually, while saving over $5,000 in fuel costs for each vehicle. Lancaster-based propane retailer Charter Fuels is coordinating vehicle conversions, fueling, staff training and support for the Berres Brothers fleet as part of the Alliance AutoGas network. “Berres Brothers is committed to leading the coffee roasting industry in Wisconsin and the Midwest in environmental responsibility,” says Greg Beranek of Berres Brothers Coffee Roasters. “We’re converting fleet vehicles to propane autogas because it’s significantly cleaner than gasoline, while also being cost-effective to implement. We plan to switch additional vehicles to autogas as older ones retire to continue improving the air quality in our local communities.”
