Clean Energy Fuels Corp has signed a 10-year strategic partnership agreement with Saddle Creek Corp, a logistics services provider, to build natural gas fueling stations at existing Saddle Creek locations in the US.
Saddle Creek Transportation president Mike DelBovo said the company aims to provide the benefits of the clean, cost-efficient, abundant domestic fuel to its shipping industry customers across the nation.
Saddle Creek’s first network of natural gas fueling station opened in December at the company’s headquarters campus in Lakeland, Florida.
The station is designed to fuel up to 120 CNG trucks per day and equipped with four fast-fill pumps and 20 time-fill hoses.
Other sites under consideration include Saddle Creek locations in the states of Atlanta, Georgia, Charlotte, North Carolina, and Dallas, Texas.
Saddle Creek is a nationwide third-party supply chain logistics company that integrates transportation, warehousing, contract packaging and fulfillment services.
The company operates 29 facilities across the country, which aggregate over 14 million square feet of warehousing space.
Clean Energy chief marketing officer James Harger said investing in natural gas vehicles for its fleets, and the fuel stations to supply them, is clear evidence of Saddle Creek’s commitment to help the supply chain trucking industry lower fuel costs, curtail harmful emissions, and reduce dependence on imported oil.
