A new compressed natural gas (CNG) station in Lanoraie, QC, will complement Express Mondor’s new truck fleet, as it looks to cut fuel costs and its carbon footprint.

The new CNG station will be the ninth station added to Quebec’s Blue Road, a trucking corridor for access to alternative fuels.

The CNG station represents a $3.5 million investment from GAIN Clean Fuel and Express Mondor. It is expected to be built by the end of 2016.

Billy Mondor, vice-president of business development at Express Mondor, announced that the fleet intends to purchase 50 new CNG trucks over the next few years as they “continue to provide stellar service to our customers across North America while also improving our energy and environmental performance.”

Express Mondor estimates it will save considerably on fuel costs and gain as much as 30% in efficiency per kilometer, in addition to decreasing greenhouse gas emissions up to 25% with its new trucks.
