Clean Energy Expands Fueling Agreements with New and Existing USPS Fleets

02:43 10/31/2017

Clean Energy Fuels Corp. CLNE  announced that it has signed multiple fueling agreements with United States Postal Service contract-carriers in Florida, New York, Oklahoma, and Texas, increasing the total number of USPS carriers fueling with Clean Energy now to 15.

C. Blackburn Trucking Associates signed the new deals with CLNE , who will fuel four of their Class-8 heavy-duty trucks at Clean Energy’s John F. Kennedy International Airport station.

In addition, G&P Trucking, based out of Springfield, Missouri, will fuel at Clean Energy’s compressed natural gas fueling station at Will Roger’s Airport in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

Thunder Ridge Transport will also fuel 20 new compressed natural gas trucks out of Clean Energy’s Dallas-Fort Worth station.

“The United States Postal Service takes our sustainability goals very seriously. Our carriers live in the very same communities we serve, and we continue to look for ways to reduce our impact on the environment. Since 2005, we have increased the use of alternative fuels by 141%, and we are encouraged that our contract-carriers are using alternative fuels as well,” said Bridget Rice, Manager, Surface Transportation CMC at USPS.

“Businesses that require goods to be transported, such as the USPS, continue to demand cleaner fleets in their supply chain. And fleets realize that by reducing their greenhouse gas emissions as well as NOx by switching to natural gas, they not only help the environment, but they’re also winning more business,” said Ashley White, Head of Corporate Sustainability at Clean Energy.
