Clean Energy Fuels (NASDAQ:CLNE) has signed a 10-year pact with Saddle Creek to build natural gas fueling stations to support the logistics firm’s expanding natural gas-powered truck fleet.
Saddle Creek is a third-party supply chain logistics (3PL) outfit that integrates transportation, warehousing, contract packaging and fulfillment services. It operates 29 facilities across the country with more than 14 million square feet of warehousing space, Clean Energy says.
The first of a planned network of compressed natural gas fueling stations opened in December at Saddle Creek’s headquarters campus in Lakeland, Fla. “Designed to fuel up to 120 CNG trucks per day, it is equipped with four fast-fill pumps and 20 time-fill hoses.”
Under consideration are Saddle Creek locations in Atlanta, Charlotte, and Dallas.
Saddle Creek fielded 40 long-range CNG Freightliner Business Class M2 112 trucks with Agility Fuel Systems tank assemblies for work in Florida and southern Georgia last year (F&F, October 17).
Separately, Clean Energy opened Florida’s first public-access airport CNG station, at Tampa International.
