Trillium CNG, Sheehy Mail Contractors Partner in Nebraska

Sheehy Mail Contractors Inc. has partnered with Trillium CNG after adding to its natural gas-vehicle fleet and now stops at the Trillium compressed natural gas refueling station in Omaha, Neb.

Sheehy was an early adopter of CNG, beginning the conversion process in 2013, and has driven 35 million miles on CNG. The alternative fuel accounts for 92% of all fuel purchased by Sheehy Mail Contractors, according to Trillium.

Sheehy’s NGV fleet expansion in Omaha involved multiple agencies and sectors, Trillium said. The Metropolitan Utilities District helped offset the incremental cost of purchasing natural gas vehicles; Sheehy applied to this program and was awarded incentives to purchase four new Freightliner CNG trucks.

Since 2013, the district’s fleet-fund program has assisted in the purchase of more than CNG 110 vehicles in the Omaha market, according to Trillium.

Trillium CNG , a unit of Love’s Travel Stops & Country Stores, delivers more than 70 million gallons of CNG per year. Combined, Love’s Travel Stops and Trillium own 65 public-access CNG facilities, according to Oklahoma City-based Love’s.
