U.S. Gain to Open Fifth CNG Station for Core-Mark in Florida
Core-Mark is celebrating the grand opening of the new GAIN Clean Fuel CNG station that will fuel its fleet of natural gas trucks. The station, located in Tampa, Florida, was built through a partnership with U.S. Gain, a division of U.S. Venture, which owns and operates the GAIN Clean Fuel brand. It is the last of five stations to go into operation under this partnership.
“CNG advances our commitment to becoming more environmentally friendly through improved sustainable business practices,” said Core-Mark Florida Division President Jason Nevin. “Utilizing GAIN Clean Fuel is key to that success.”
Core-Mark’s commitment to a CNG program began with an initial conversion of its fleet. Today, there are 210 Core-Mark CNG tractors on the road with more planned in the future. In addition to working with the partner carrier to understand the cost and emissions benefits, U.S. Gain works jointly with its partner carriers to site GAIN Clean Fuel Stations in strategic locations. The other four stations in operation through this partnership are located in Sanford, North Carolina; Smyrna, Georgia; Aurora, Colorado; and Forrest City, Arkansas.
“Projects like these show how great partnerships can succeed when working toward a common outcome that benefits so many,” said Tampa Bay Clean Cities coordinator Stephen Reich. “In addition to the many benefits of CNG, fewer emissions are produced which is good for the environment and for all of us.”
