Clean Energy supplying natural gas to Central Freight Lines

Central Freight Lines has signed a multi-year fuel agreement with Clean Energy Fuels to supply compressed natural gas (CNG) for its fleet of 114 trucks.

Clean Energy will open a South Ft. Worth station to Central Freight Lines and anticipates additional fuel support at its Dallas Love, Dallas Irving Blvd. and San Antonio, Texas, stations.

Central tested 14 CNG tractors in August 2012 and added 100 additional CNG tractors to its fleet in May of this year. The fleet expects to use approximately 300,000 diesel gallon equivalents of CNG per year, reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 695 metric tons.

“For nearly 90 years Central Freight Lines has been a Texas leader in transportation solutions for both emerging businesses and Fortune 500 companies. With our continued investment in CNG equipment, we solidify our commitment to our customers, our community and environmental sustainability,” said Don Orr, president and CEO of Central. “This investment with Clean Energy makes positive environmental sense, allowing us to share with our customers our vision for a greener Texas future. We chose to be an active participant in a clean air initiative that will be meaningful to everyone for years to come.”
