AMP Americas Strikes Deal to Convert Two Dairy Fleets to CNG
AMP Americas has struck a deal with two dairy cooperatives to convert their fleets to compressed natural gas-powered trucks.
As part of a deal with the Dairy Farmers of America and Select Milk Producers, AMP said it will build seven public fueling stations in Texas and lease CNG trucks servicing routes in the state.
The company said the deal features beneficial contract terms for Western Dairy Transport and Reynolds Transport, establishing the two as “first-movers” by operating two of the largest 12-liter commercial CNG fleets in the United States.
“It is estimated that the culmination of this deal will displace carbon emissions equal to removing 2,400 cars per year from the road and will save the supply chain $1.50 to $2.00 in fuel savings on every gallon sold. It lets us build a network of public, fast-fill CNG stations across all of the major Texas corridors that can be used by any fleet running trucks across the state,” AMP Americas CEO Nathan Laurell said.
Stations will be built in Waco, Amarillo, Harrold, Sweetwater, Weatherford, Kerrville and Midland, according to AMP.
