GAIN Clean Fuel to Construct CNG Station to Support Ryder Fleet
On Wednesday, C.A.T. (formerly Canadian American Transportation) signed an agreement with U.S. Oil for the construction of five GAIN Clean Fuel CNG stations in the U.S. and Canada to support C.A.T.’s recent acquisition of 100 Ryder CNG sleeper tractors. The stations will be located in Toronto, Ontario; Montreal, Quebec; Laredo, Texas; Charlotte, North Carolina; and Scranton, Pennsylvania. “These new stations will be strategically located and pair well with existing GAIN stations throughout the country to create the nationwide network we need,” said Daniel Goyette, President of C.A.T. C.A.T. recently signed an agreement with Ryder for the lease of 100 sleeper tractors operating on CNG. This comprises nearly a third of C.A.T.’s fleet of 325 tractors. C.A.T. serves the automotive, appliances, paper and food service industries in the U.S., Mexico and Canada through its six terminals located in North America. The agreement with GAIN will build on their ability to reach all regions of the country with their trucking operations. U.S. Oil currently has 38 GAIN stations in operation or under construction.
