C.R. England Unveiled LNG Tractor/Trailer Fleet at Ribbon Cutting Celebration
October 12, 2011
October 11, 2011 (Ontario, CA) – C.R. England, one of North America’s largest transportation providers, today unveiled a new fleet of liquefied natural gas (LNG) tractors to be used in its Ontario, California Dedicated operation division. The announcement was made at the Ontario Convention Center with the new tractors and trailers on hand for inspection. Guest speakers included Dean England, President of C. R. England; Wayne Cederholm, CEO of C. R. England, and Ontario City Council Member Alan D. Wapner.
“C.R. England continually strives to find and implement greener transportation options,” said Dean England, President, C.R. England. “LNG tractors use natural gas and are one of the best alternative fuels currently available. We are incredibly excited to be the largest refrigerated carrier to incorporate LNG tractors into our fleet and see great potential for future expansion.”
The Ribbon Cutting Celebration focused on key topics of green transportation, the benefits of LNG tractors, and launched the LNG fleet which will run from Ontario, CA to Las Vegas, NV. Benefits of liquid natural gas include:
• Safe fuel option: It is nontoxic and disperses quickly.
• Environmentally friendly: It is the cleanest of all fossil fuels and emits up to 30 percent less greenhouse gas than gasoline or diesel vehicles.
• Domestic: Up to 99 percent of the gas C.R. England uses comes from North America.
• Abundant: Liquid natural gas is abundant in North America.
“When you’re dealing with a quality transportation company like C. R. England it is no surprise that they are on the forefront of using alternative fuels for their fleet,” said Ontario City Council Member Alan D. Wapner. “The City of Ontario appreciates companies who do business in our City and whose values align with our City’s Climate Action Plan.”
