Midwest Cargo Partners for new GAIN Clean Fuel CNG Station

U.S. GAIN and Midwest Cargo Systems are partnering on a new GAIN Clean Fuel CNG station in Hodgkins, Illinois, a Chicago suburb.  The new GAIN station at Midwest Cargo’s facility is a half mile south of the intersection of I-294 and I-55, offering easy on-off access to both interstates.  This corridor is one of the busiest trucking corridors in the country.  Construction is scheduled to begin mid-March 2015.

Presently, Midwest Cargo is acquiring 10 Class 8 CNG tractors through a lease from Ryder.  With a fleet of over 100 dry vans and reefers and 50 tri-axle chassis, Midwest Cargo serves a variety of transportation needs in the region, including the delivery of intermodal containers and dedicated fleet operations. This is first time Midwest Cargo will operate CNG trucks.

With this partnership, GAIN Clean Fuel is on track with its plan to have more than 100 CNG stations in operation within the next two years. There are currently 43 GAIN Clean Fuel stations in operation or under construction throughout the U.S.  Each provides fast-fill capabilities and has fleet card acceptance. All of the GAIN stations are open for use by other companies and the general public.
