Love’s Travel Stops, in cooperation with Werner Enterprises, has opened its first compressed natural gas location in Georgia. The existing Love’s location in Thomson is now offering fast-fill CNG capabilities for heavy-duty trucks as well as for passenger vehicles. “Customers in east Georgia, including Werner, are asking for more CNG locations and we’re happy to meet that need,” said Bill Cashmareck, general manager of natural gas for Love’s. “Thomson is an ideal location because Interstate 20 is a major east-west route. This location will serve residents, fleets and leisure travelers who need a convenient place to fill.”Werner, which operates more than 7,100 trucks, planned to purchase eight CNG trucks specifically for the Thomson area, but lacked a reliable place to fill, according to Love’s. “We needed a convenient location where our drivers could have access to other necessities,” said Steve Phillips, senior vice president of fleet resources for Werner Enterprises. “Love’s has been a great business partner so we reached out to them. The opening of this new location and others allows us to continue to invest in domestically-produced energy, which is important to us and our customers.”
