Express Mondor to buy 50 CNG trucks, build public filling station

by Truck News

LANORAIE, Que. – Express Mondor has announced it will construct a compressed natural gas (CNG) filling station for its fleet of 50 new CNG-fueled trucks.

The company is working with US Venture GAIN Clean Fuel Canada and Gaz Metro to construct the site, which will be open to the public. It’s the ninth natural gas fueling station to join the so-called Blue Road.

Construction has already begun and will finish by the end of this year, the company announced. It will be located along Hwy. 40, on the north side of Lanoraie’s industrial park.

“We chose to partner with GAIN Clean Fuel to build this station to secure our position at the leading edge of our industry. Moreover, we have undertaken to acquire 50 new CNG trucks over the next few years to continue to provide stellar service to our customers across North America while also improving our energy and environmental performance,” said Billy Mondor, vice-president of business development at Express Mondor.

“We are delighted with our agreement with Express Mondor and at the prospect of the building of this new public CNG station in Lanoraie,” added Marc-André Paquin, director of business development at GAIN Clean Fuel Canada. “The new station will be located alongside Highway 40’s very busy trucking corridor, which connects Montreal and Quebec City by way of Trois-Rivières, and will thereby offer the benefits of CNG to other carriers that wish to use an alternative fuel.”

Express Mondor also announced it is updating the look of its fleet.

“Express Mondor has also updated its visual identity, which will appear on all our new trucks, as well as, progressively, on all our other trucks and branding and communications tools. Our motto, ‘Powered by passion,’ describes the dynamism and energy that fuel our entire team and help us meet the needs of our customers, while keeping safe driving and environmental protection at the heart of our business goals,” added Mondor.
