Clean Energy Adds Major Trucking Fleets To Natural Gas Fueling

Stocks in this article: CLNE

Clean Energy Fuels Corp. (Nasdaq:CLNE) today announced that it has begun providing natural gas fuel to additional trucking fleets which transport products for some of the country’s largest and most well-known brands, accelerating the trucking industry’s conversion to natural gas fuel.

Five firms — Saddle Creek Logistics Services, Lakeland, FL; Premier Transportation, Atlanta, GA; Hoopes Turf Farm, Transport Division, Ulysses, PA; Lily Transportation Corp., Needham, MA; and Lancaster Foods, Jessup, MD — will use compressed natural gas (CNG) at existing Clean Energy public access stations, new stations built for the companies, and liquefied natural gas (LNG) at Clean Energy stations along its America’s Natural Gas Highway™.

“These companies are geographically diverse, but the common theme we hear from all of them is a desire to reduce their fuel costs and to deploy cleaner operating fleets,” said James Harger, Clean Energy’s Chief Marketing Officer. “With the availability of a new class of heavy-duty natural gas trucks as well as more fueling stations, regional and national trucking operators are seeing the enormous benefits of converting to natural gas as their transportation fuel.”

Saddle Creek Logistics Services

Saddle Creek, a nationwide third-party logistics company, has expanded its contract with Clean Energy to build additional private natural gas fueling stations to support Saddle Creek’s expanding fleet of for-hire CNG trucks. Fueling at its new CNG station at the company’s Lakeland headquarters, a fleet of 40 Freightliner natural gas trucks is now serving Saddle Creek’s Florida customers. With its CNG fleet size projected to grow to 120 trucks, this will be the largest over-the-road CNG truck fleet in the state.

“Sustainability is a core strategy at Saddle Creek. We have opted to transition our truck fleets to natural gas power to help our customers secure the benefits of this clean, cost-efficient, abundant domestic fuel,” said Mike DelBovo, Saddle Creek’s President.
