“Although this is newer technology, it is evolving quickly and the infrastructure to support CNG trucks is growing rapidly. We are pleased and committed to supporting initiatives that involve alternative fuels, and understand the financial and environmental benefit of using our CNG trucks within our distribution networks,” he stated.
Premier Transportation is a provider of transportation and logistics solutions to the retail department stores and consumer products industries. Premier’s CNG trucks will initially be deployed in major metropolitan areas throughout the U.S. Premier will fuel exclusively at Clean Energy facilities and it is expected that each truck will consume over 15,000 gallons per year.
