In increasing numbers, major U.S. contract freight carriers are deploying heavy-duty natural gas-powered trucks to support their customers’ supply chain transport requirements. Clean Energy Fuels Corp. (Nasdaq: CLNE), North America’s leading supplier of natural gas fuel for transportation, contracts with carrier fleet operators to provide compressed natural gas (CNG) or liquefied natural gas (LNG) fueling services at Clean Energy public access stations nationwide.
Among the most recent for-hire fleet operators to opt for natural gas fuel are Premier Transportation, headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia; Transplace, Frisco, Texas, and Glacier Transportation & Logistics, Atlanta, Georgia; Dillon Transportation LLC, Burr Ridge, Illinois; C.R. England, Salt Lake City, Utah; Ryder Dedicated Logistics, El Segundo, California; CEVA Logistics, Hoofddorp, the Netherlands; and Werner Enterprises, Omaha, Nebraska.
James Harger, Chief Marketing Officer, Clean Energy, said, “Like Premier, Transplace, Glacier, Dillon, C.R. England, Ryder, CEVA and Werner, truck fleet operators across the country are turning to natural gas power. They seek fuel cost savings, reduced foreign oil dependence, and the environmental benefits of this abundant American resource. Clean Energy commends these companies, and many others like them, for their visionary leadership in the retail and customer products transportation sector.”
Premier TransportationPremier Transportation is a nationwide provider of transportation and logistics solutions to the retail department stores and consumer products industries. Premier’s CNG trucks will initially be deployed in major metropolitan areas throughout the U.S. Premier will fuel exclusively at Clean Energy facilities and it is expected that each truck will consume over 15,000 gallons per year. Transplace and Glacier Transportation & Logistics Third-party logistics leader Transplace and Sunny Delight Beverages Co. have partnered with Glacier Transportation and Clean Energy to deploy a new CNG-powered truck fleet. The five-year agreement will transport products such as Sunny Delight and Fruit2O beverages to customers across the Southern California market. Glacier expects the transition from diesel power to CNG fuel for its fleet operations will result in substantially less greenhouse gas emissions and reduced fuel costs.
