Northeast Foods Inc. is working with U.S. Oil to establish a GAIN Clean Fuel compressed natural gas (CNG) refueling station in Baltimore to support its deployment of heavy-duty natural gas vehicles.
The new station, which will be located at the intersection of I-95 and I-895, will initially focus on providing CNG for trucks running Northeast Foods' and H&S Bakery's regional distribution routes. Northeast Foods' NGV initiative will start off with 25 Class 8 tractors powered by CNG.
Chuck Paterakis, vice president of transportation and logistics for Northeast Foods, says the GAIN Clean Fuel facility ‘strategically positions our company to benefit from the future growth of CNG in the transportation industry.’
Northeast Foods, which has a service area spanning 23 states, has been the bakery provider for McDonald's and other fast-food restaurants for more than 40 years.
