The American Trucking Associations (ATA) has announced that Shell LNG will continue to be part of ATA’s Featured Product program for a second consecutive year.

“In today’s marketplace, the increased demand for sustainable freight transport has more carriers moving their fleets towards alternative fuels,” said ATA President and CEO Bill Graves. “We’re pleased that Shell LNG is continuing to help ATA members realize that goal as part of our Featured Product program.”

Shell liquefied natural gas fuel is now available at two additional TravelCenters of America truck fueling stations in Texas, bringing the total to five sites within the United States. These stations are located in San Antonio and Dallas and follow on the heels of the opening of Shell LNG fueling lanes in Baytown, Texas, as well as Lafayette, La., in March this year. The Baytown, San Antonio and Dallas stations are strategically located in the Texas Triangle, a region with heavy truck traffic.

“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 road transport fuel mix and continue to look at supply opportunities in the region,” said Shell’s Christian Buelow, general manager of Downstream LNG, Americas.

“Participating in ATA’s Featured Product program 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,” Buelow said.
