FedEx, Clean Energy Fuels opens CNG fueling station in Oklahoma City

By REW Staff, Renewable Energy from Waste.

The leaders of FedEx Corp, Memphis, Tennessee, Clean Energy Fuels Corp., Newport Beach, California, and the state of Oklahoma officially opened a compressed natural gas (CNG) station in Oklahoma City that will allow more than 100 FedEx Freight Class 8 trucks to use fast-fueling as well as time-fueling. Clean Energy also announced that it expects to supply the station with its Redeem renewable natural gas (RNG) vehicle fuel in the near future.

“As one of the largest logistics companies in the world, FedEx does its homework when charting a new course and their decision to open up a major CNG fueling center was no different,” says Andrew J. Littlefair, CEO and president of Clean Energy. “Led by Fred’s [Smith, CEO and chairman at FedEx] vision, the company has always had a commitment to operate on the highest sustainable level. Transitioning a portion of FedEx Freight’s fleet to a fuel that will substantially reduce greenhouse gas emissions is another example of their leadership.”
