Columbus Station Will Be Growing Company’s Twelfth
U.S. Oil is building a “Gain Clean Fuel” compressed natural gas fueling station in partnership with FST Logistics in Columbus, Ohio. The station will support FST’s CNG truck fleet and will be available for use by other companies and individual drivers.
The Columbus CNG station will be U.S. Oil-Gain’s twelfth, “adding to their vision of creating a CNG network of stations across the nation.” The company says it plans to add 50 new CNG stations in the next three years.
“The partnership with FST Logistics is very exciting, as we are able to develop a new fueling location for its fleet operations, saving both fuel and labor costs,” Gain Clean Fuel GM Bill Renz said in a release.
‘Ideal Location for CNG Fleet Growth’
“This location at the intersection of I-70 and I-270 in Columbus is ideal for CNG fleet growth and fits perfectly into our long-range strategic plan.”
FST Logistics has 15 vehicles in its fleet capable of CNG conversions, states the Gain announcement, with new orders for 20 tractors and eight other vehicles in the next twelve months. FST wants to convert all of its fleet as more CNG stations are developed throughout the country, Gain says.
CNG, FST president Dave Kent says in the Gain announcement, “will allow us to remain competitive over the long term.” FST has a fleet of 150 53-foot refrigerated trailers and 100 tractors.
