Premier provides transportation and logistics solutions to the retail department store and consumer products industries. Supported by a national CNG fueling contract with Clean Energy, Premier has deployed a new fleet of CNG-powered heavy-duty Freightliner trucks to serve its customers in the Greater Atlanta area. Expanding to major U.S. metropolitan areas over time, Premier CNG trucks will fuel at Clean Energy’s national network of public access CNG stations.
Premier Chairman and CEO, Mike Medici, said, “Our transition to natural gas fuel for our truck fleets gives us a hedge against rising fuel costs, and the chance to offer a clean, domestic, abundant fuel source to support the sustainability objectives of our retail industry customers.”
