WACO, Texas — Central Freight Lines has placed an order for 100 Freightliner M2 112 trucks powered by compressed natural gas (CNG).

The trucks will contain the Cummins Westport ISL G engine, wth 260-320 hp and up to 1,000 lb-ft. of torque. Central Freight Lines says it has partnered with a fuel supplier to build CNG stations in Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio, Texas. It’s looking to convert its fleet to CNG technology to reduce its dependence on foreign oil and reduce its impact on the environment, the company claims.

“We are committed to energy conservation and a cleaner environment,” said Central Freight Lines’ president and CEO Don Orr. “In 2012, we purchased CNG tractors that have been servicing the Houston area with proven efficiencies. As a result, we decided to continue investing in CNG tractors, specifically Freightliner trucks because of their reliability and the company’s customer support.”
