Indian River Transport Adds Five CNG Freightliners to Fleet
Indian River Transport, a food grade tank carrier based in Winter Haven, Florida, has added five Freightliner Cascadia 113 CNG day cabs to its fleet. The new trucks are the first alternative fuel vehicles in the 600-tractor fleet. The new CNG trucks will be used for 10–12 runs per day, per truck, 24 hours a day.
“One of our customers wanted a smaller carbon footprint, lower fuel costs and reduced noise levels in the communities these trucks serve,” said Mark Gressett, safety director for Indian River Transport. “Freightliner’s natural gas solution aligned with our priorities.”
The new Cascadia 113 CNG day cab trucks are powered by the CWI ISX12 G natural gas engine and are well suited for regional hauling and vocational operations. They are available with CNG fuel tank configurations up to 190 DGE capacity with an anticipated range of about 800 miles.
