According to Don Orr, president and chief executive officer of Central Freight Lines, the Waco, Texas-based less-than-truckload carrier is partnering to build new CNG stations in Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio. Additionally, the company was able to take advantage of a Texas Emissions Reduction Plan (TERP) program that gives participants the opportunity to trade a less-efficient truck towards a cost reduction on each new CNG-fueled truck purchased.

“We are committed to energy conservation and a cleaner environment,” Orr said. “In 2012, we purchased CNG tractors that have been servicing the Houston area. As a result of their proven efficiency, we decided to continue investing in CNG tractors, specifically Freightliner trucks.”

Founded in 1925, Central Freight Lines operates more than 1,600 trucks from a network of 51 terminals throughout the southwest.
