CarterEnergy to Move its Fleet Operations to Fairfax Area and Open Public Fueling Station
OVERLAND PARK, KS, AUGUST 1, 2014 – CarterEnergy, a division of World Fuel Services, Inc., is bringing a new Product Distribution Center (PDC) and a public fueling station (Cardlock) to the Fairfax area. The company has acquired 5.8 acres of land at 401 Kindleberger in Kansas City, Kansas, and has plans to construct a 5,600 square-foot facility to house its Kansas City fleet operations.
"The new PDC will provide room for future growth in the Kansas City market," said Shannon Stringer, Vice President of Transportation and Logistics for CarterEnergy. "It will also help improve our service level to customers by being closer to our two main loading terminals."
The planned Cardlock will provide area fleets a resource for fueling their vehicles with Diesel, DEF (Diesel Exhaust Fluid) and Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) via our CNG@WORKSM branded offering.
"The broad and rapid market adoption of CNG as a transportation fuel is occurring within the heavy-duty trucking transportation class; and momentum within the medium-duty class (pick-ups and work class vehicles) is growing," said Dan Genovese, Director of CNG Development for CarterEnergy. "Our CNG@WORKSM program provides customers with the lowest cost natural gas supply; CNG vehicle and refueling infrastructure consulting; and turnkey CNG station financing and development. In addition to providing convenient public access to low-cost, fast-fill CNG fueling at the Fairfax facility, we will be helping our existing commercial fleet customers who are considering converting to CNG, as well as creating new relationships with other fleets who are looking for these types of CNG solutions."
CarterEnergy (carterenergy.com) is currently hosting a monthly webinar titled, "CNG Conversion 101", to interested fleet owners and operators. The webinar will cover the following topics:
• CNG's role in the future of transportation and why you should consider converting your fleet
• CNG Fleet Benefits, including a substantial reduction in fuel costs
• How vehicle technology has transformed to meet the growing CNG demand
• The economic implications of converting your fleet to CNG
