CarterEnergy, a division of World Fuel Services Corp., is opening two new facilities in Kansas, including its first public-access compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station.
On Sept. 18, the company will cut the ribbon on its new product distribution center (PDC) on 3230 Fiberglass Rd. in Kansas City and its Cardlock CNG station, just north of the PDC at 401 Kindleberger.
The fast-fill station, which will provide a resource for area fleets to fuel their vehicles with CNG, diesel and diesel exhaust fluid, will accept Voyager, Comdata, WEX and Multi Service fleet fuel cards, as well as most major credit cards.
The build is a project powered by World Fuel Services' CNG@WORK, a full-spectrum program that helps fleets convert to CNG.
‘Over the past several years, we have become more heavily involved with alternative fuels, and CNG@WORKS fits right into our mix. This program will not only attract new business, but will also allow us to provide additional value to our current fleet customers who seek alternate ways to manage costs and increase efficiencies,’ comments Jim Prosser, vice president of commercial fuels for CarterEnergy.
Shannon Stringer, vice president of transportation and logistics for CarterEnergy, notes that the company itself recently converted a number of vehicles to CNG.
‘Through our partnership with MHC Kenworth, we have exchanged nine diesel-powered units for nine CNG-powered units (Kenworth T680 and T880 models), which will begin running in the area very soon,’ Stringer says.
