C.A.T. Inc. has signed an agreement with U.S. Oil for the construction of five GAIN® Clean Fuel CNG stations to support C.A.T.’s recent acquisition of 100 Ryder CNG sleeper tractors. The facilities will be located in Toronto, Ontario; Montreal, Quebec; Laredo, Texas; Charlotte, North Carolina; and Scranton, Pennsylvania; and will provide easy-access, fast-fill capabilities like all other GAIN stations.
“The partnership with U.S. Oil is critical to our business needs. These new stations will be strategically located and pair well with existing GAIN stations throughout the country to build the nationwide network we need. We understand the importance of CNG in our industry, and this partnership is very important for C.A.T. and our company’s commitment to the future,” said Daniel Goyette, President of C.A.T. Inc.
C.A.T. recently signed an agreement with Ryder for the lease of 100 sleeper tractors operating on CNG. This comprises nearly a third of C.A.T.’s fleet of 325 tractors. “There are so many benefits to using CNG and we want to be sure we are leveraging the benefits to better serve our customers,” Goyette explained.
Bill Renz, general manager for GAIN® Clean Fuel, also commented: “Many carriers do small, incremental conversions to their fleets. To make the decision to convert 100 trucks at once is a true testament of significant benefits CNG offers carriers and U.S. Oil is working hard to ensure that the network is in place for carriers to benefit from it. That network now includes Canada.”
