Donlen has signed an agreement with VNG.CO, a nationwide compressed natural gas (CNG) retail-centric fueling facility program, to provide access to a network of compressed natural gas fueling locations for its fleet customers.
“By partnering with VNG.CO, we’re providing resources that our customers need to successfully implement light-duty CNG vehicles in their fleet,” said Amy Blaine, Donlen’s VP of Consulting, Analytics, and Sustainability. “Now, in addition to providing analysis and vehicles that show customers where CNG makes sense for them, we’re giving them access to a network of stations. This comprehensive program makes sense from both implementation and ROI perspective and will help customers make decisions about choosing CNG vehicles for their fleet.”
Natural gas vehicles (NGV) can provide significant cost savings over gas vehicles. Lowering emissions, reducing dependence on foreign oil, and supporting corporate sustainability strategies are additional benefits to implementing a CNG fleet strategy.
VNG.CO fueling facilities will be available to fleets at prime retail locations, giving drivers all the advantages of gasoline station convenience with the compelling benefits of NGVs. For fleets operating bi-fuel vehicles which can fuel on CNG or gasoline, drivers have access to both fuels at a single location. VNG.CO’s fueling facility program emphasizes locations that are convenient and accessible, allowing fleets to maintain or improve productivity while enjoying a familiar retail fueling experience.
“We look forward to working with Donlen to provide their light-duty fleet customers a fueling solution that enables a seamless transition to NGVs,” said Robert Friedman, Chief Operating Officer of VNG. “This initiative is aligned with our vision of developing a national CNG fueling network for all drivers.”
