Northeast Foods has signed an agreement with US Oil for a new GAIN Clean Fuel compressed natural gas (CNG) station in Baltimore MD.
Located at the intersection of Interstate 95 and I-895, the station will service Northeast Foods and H&S Bakery’s regional distribution routes for their fresh bakery products. A family-owned company, Northeast Foods’ service area includes 23 states and employs more than 2,000 people. It has been the bakery provider for McDonald’s and other fast-food restaurants since the 1960s.
The partnership allows Northeast Foods to continue its commitment to a corporate environmental policy and stewardship of the environment. Chuck Paterakis, vice-president, transportation and logistics for Northeast Foods, cited his company’s willingness to invest in CNG.
“Northeast Foods is proud to partner with U.S. Oil as we transition a significant portion of our fleet to CNG,” he said. Northeast Foods will initially convert 25 Class 8 tractors to run on CNG in the Baltimore market.
One of the main advantages for fleets converting to CNG is that it is a cost-effective alternative to diesel fuel, offering a savings of more than $2 per gallon equivalent.
US Oil now has 32 GAIN Clean Fuel stations operating or under construction throughout the United States. The company is in the midst of a national expansion of its network of CNG stations.
Another advantage of CNG is that it’s a domestically produced product, which insulates it from global influences that create price volatility in other fuels such as diesel.
