Supply Chain Fleet Operators Eying Natural Gas Power

May 2012, Vol. 239 No. 5

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., 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, Atlanta, GA; Transplace, Frisco, TX; and Glacier Transportation & Logistics, Atlanta; Dillon Transportation LLC, Burr Ridge, IL; C.R. England, Salt Lake City, UT; Ryder Dedicated Logistics, El Segundo, CA; CEVA Logistics, Hoofddorp, the Netherlands; and Werner Enterprises, Omaha, NE.

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 environmental benefits.”
