CHARLOTTE, N.C., Nov. 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Representatives from Canadian American Transport (C.A.T.) and U.S. Gain, along with local and regional dignitaries, celebrated the grand opening of the newest GAIN Clean Fuel® compressed natural gas (CNG) station in Charlotte, North Carolina. The GAIN station, located at 4250 Trailer Drive will provide the North American carrier with alternative fuel to support C.A.T.'s growing fleet of CNG trucks.
"We're proud to be leading the industry in creating sustainable transport," said C.A.T., Inc. President Daniel Goyette. "We've made an investment in our future with the conversion of our fleet to CNG. It's been a very positive move by helping us become more environmentally friendly and creating fuel price stability. We couldn't be happier with our partnership to make this facility a reality." Nearly a third of C.A.T.'s fleet of 350 tractors will be converted to CNG.
This is the third of five GAIN Clean Fuel Station locations to open in partnership with C.A.T. The first station opened in Mississauga, Ontario and the second in Coteau-du-Lac, Quebec, Canada. The other two locations include Laredo, Texas and Scranton, Pennsylvania. These stations are finishing up on construction and will be opening soon.
"We're thrilled to have another C.A.T. station open for business," said GAIN Clean Fuel General Manager Bill Renz. "This is a heavily traveled trucking corridor and we look forward to serving not only C.A.T., but other carriers seeking to take advantage of the benefits."
The Charlotte, North Carolina location, like all other GAIN Clean Fuel stations, will provide easy-access, fast-fill capabilities and will be open for use by other fleets and the general public. They will also have fleet card acceptance capabilities for trucker convenience and provide reliability to ensure that fleets have a consistent fuel source.
