C.R. England on Tuesday, Oct. 11, unveiled a new fleet of liquefied natural gas tractors to be used in its Dedicated operation division in Ontario, Calif. 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, chief executive officer of C. R. England, and Ontario City Council Member Alan Wapner.
“C.R. England continually strives to find and implement greener transportation options,” says Dean 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 and the benefits of LNG tractors and launched the LNG fleet that will run from Ontario to Las Vegas, Nev. C.R. England says the benefits of LNG 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 the company uses comes from North America; and
• Abundant: LNG 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,” Wapner says. “The City of Ontario appreciates companies who do business in our City and whose values align with our City’s Climate Action Plan.”
