American Trucking Associations (ATA) has confirmed that Shell LNG will continue to be part of the company’s Featured Product programme for a second straight year.
ATA President and CEO, Bill Graves, said: "In today's marketplace, the increased demand for sustainable freight transport has more carriers moving their fleets towards alternative fuels […] We're pleased that Shell LNG is continuing to help ATA members realise that goal as part of our Featured Product programme."
Shell LNG fuel is now available at two additional TravelCenters of America LLC truck fuelling stations in Texas, US. This brings the total to five sites within the US.
"We expect the strengthening supply chain in North America to give customers reassurance that LNG is a viable fuel alternative to diesel today. We believe in the potential of LNG fuel becoming a bigger part of the marine and road transport fuel mix and continue to look at supply opportunities in the region," said Shell's Christian Buelow, General Manager Downstream LNG, Americas.
"Participating in ATA's Featured Product programme offers us the opportunity to engage and interact with transport providers and help to further expand on the use of LNG as a road fuel," added Buelow.
