Smith Dairy Trucking opens northern Ohio CNG fueling station

Smith Dairy Trucking unveiled a new compressed natural gas fueling island in northern Ohio late this summer and said it is now making the station available to other fleets around the clock, seven days a week.

Smith Dairy Trucking unveiled a new compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling island in northern Ohio late this summer and is now making the station available to other fleets around the clock, seven days a week.

Designed for 18-wheeler traffic, the privately-owned station primarily services the six CNG-dedicated freightliner tractor trucks in the Smith Dairy fleet, and now welcomes other CNG vehicles to utilize the island, which accepts fleet accounts and credit card payments.
 
According to Penny Baker, Dairy Enterprises Inc. marketing director, environmental impact was the primary motivation for the fleet conversion and fueling island. The low cost of natural gas and better city mileage was an added bonus.
 
“Our drivers really like the vehicles’ automatic transmissions and quiet, smooth ride,” said Baker. “Plus, our new tractor trucks can travel 325 miles on a fill-up, delivering Smith’s premium dairy products throughout the region, while reducing greenhouse gasses.”
 
The CNG fueling station is located at 444 Hostetler Road in Orrville, Ohio, 44667, approximately one hour south of Cleveland and two hours north of Columbus, Ohio. Fleet managers can contact Smith Dairy trucking fleet manager Chuck Diehl at 330-684-6586 or [email protected] for more information or to establish a fleet account.
