Station for West Memphis Is to Be Its Seventh on I-40,
Will Enable Swift Transportation to Add to Its CNG Fleet
Love’s Travel Stops said today that it will expand its network of Love’s Fast-Fill CNG stations to Arkansas, offering compressed natural gas in West Memphis by spring 2015. The station will be the seventh Love’s CNG outlet on Interstate 40.
The new location will allow Swift Transportation, which operates one of the largest for-hire commercial carriers in the country, to add to its growing CNG fleet, Love’s says.
“As we add CNG trucks, it’s imperative that we have access to dependable locations to fuel nationwide,” Swift president and CEO Richard Stocking says in the West Memphis announcement.
More than 1,300 Miles of Love’s CNG
“With the opening of this location, professional drivers and motorists can travel more than 1,300 miles along I-40 between West Memphis, Arkansas, and Williams, Arizona, using Love’s CNG,” Love’s co-CEO Frank Love said in a release.
“Expanding our offerings along this major interstate, and others across the country, makes CNG a viable option for more types of trucking applications,” Love said.
Love’s notes that its Fast-Fill CNG is designed for over-the-road fleets, and that it makes CNG available in-lane along with diesel and DEF/diesel exhaust fuel. The Love’s Fast-Fill CNG feature “a fill rate of greater than 10 gallons per minute, meaning a driver can fill a 100 gallon equivalent tank in 10 minutes or less.”
“We’ve entrusted Love’s for many years to provide us with a quality product for our diesel powered trucks and this addition gives us the same level of reliability at another location for our CNG units,” Stocking said.
