The refrigerated trucking company celebrated the opening of a new terminal in Colton, CA on June 11. During the ribbon cutting event, C.R. England also announced the addition of 10 new LNG-powered trucks to its Southern California fleets. Two of the 10 Mack Pinnacle 12-liter tractors were on display.
“C.R. England is a strong advocate of sustainable transportation and is aggressively implementing and testing new technology, equipment and training to provide our customers and our environment with greener transportation,” said Zach England. “Although there are still challenges with utilizing natural gas tractors in our fleets, we have made the commitment to continually test this equipment and introduce them into strategic areas where the freight and fueling networks fit best.”
“Collaboration with both vendors and shippers has been a critical factor in the success of the implementation of natural gas tractors. We have seen some of the many benefits of natural gas. We hope to continue to expand our presence this year and into the future. We are driven to continually find ways to decrease our carbon footprint,” he added.
In 2011, C.R. England introduced 15-liter LNG tractors into its fleet. Two years later, England puts into operation a CNG vehicle fleet in Utah.
