FedEx Freight Invests in CNG Fueling at Oklahoma City Service Center
FedEx Freight, a leading U.S. provider of LTL freight services, has purchased more than 100 CNG tractors and has installed a CNG fueling station to serve the new CNG fleet at its Oklahoma City Service Center. FedEx Freight contracted with Clean Energy Fuels to design, build and maintain the fueling station.
The CNG fueling station in Oklahoma City includes a four-lane fast-fill station as well as a time-fill station with 18 hoses. The fueling station is estimated to dispense approximately 2.5 million GGEs per year.
“The use of natural gas by FedEx Freight is a natural extension of our corporate-wide efforts to provide sustainable solutions that benefit the customers and communities we serve,” said Mitch Jackson, vice president of Environmental Affairs and Sustainability, FedEx Corp. “Across the FedEx enterprise, we continuously look for ways to maximize our efficiency while advancing our commitment to connect the world in responsible and resourceful ways.”
The station will be showcased at a ribbon cutting ceremony October 11 by Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin, FedEx chairman and CEO Frederick W. Smith, Clean Energy co-founder and energy magnate T. Boone Pickens, and Clean Energy President and CEO Andrew Littlefair.
