DFA signs deal to boost haulers’ CNG fuel use

CHICAGO — AMP Americas has signed a deal with Dairy Farmers of America (DFA) and Select Milk Producers, both national dairy cooperatives, to convert a portion of their diesel needs to compressed natural gas, or CNG, by working with haulers to convert their fleets to CNG-powered trucks.

Under the agreement, AMP-Trillium, the joint venture between AMP Americas and Trillium CNG, will build seven public fueling stations and lease new CNG trucks, servicing routes throughout Texas.

The stations, which will be built in Waco, Amarillo, Harrold, Sweetwater, Weatherford, Kerrville and Midland, will initially fuel 40 new Class-8 Kenworth and Peterbilt CNG sleeper trucks, a number that will double over the course of the agreement.

The deal structured by AMP Americas features beneficial contract terms for fleets operated by Western Dairy Transport and Reynolds Transport,
