Evo Trillium for Fueling in Fort Worth and San Antonio
Waco, Texas-based Central Freight Lines has added 100 CNG-fueled M2 112 trucks to its fleet of more than 1,600 vehicles, manufacturer Freightliner reports, noting that Central will support them with fueling stations being developed with partners in Fort Worth, San Antonio and Houston.
The stations in Fort Worth and San Antonio are being developed by the Evo Trillium joint venture. Trucks in Houston will fuel at a Questar-ANGI facility (F&F, January 14).
“In 2012, we purchased CNG tractors that have been servicing the Houston area with proven efficiencies,” Central president and CEO Don Orr says in a Freightliner release. “As a result, we decided to continue investing in CNG tractors, specifically Freightliner trucks because of their reliability and the company’s customer support.”
Taking Advantage of TERP
“We like Freightliner trucks for their quality,” Orr said. They provide superior uptime and we get maximum utility over a long period. We also appreciate the dealer network. It’s supportive and professional.”
Central is taking advantage of a Texas Emissions Reduction Plan program that allows participants “to trade a less-efficient truck towards a cost reduction on each new CNG-fueled truck purchased,” Freightliner says.
