Loblaws Embracing Natural Gas with 5 New Trucks

BRAMPTON, ON — One of Canada’s largest grocery stores is adding five new liquefied natural gas-powered (LNG) trucks to its fleet.

Loblaws will utilize the new Peterbilt 386 trucks, powered by the Westport 15-liter engine, to make frequent trips from Montreal to Toronto via Highway 401.

But where will they be able to fuel these vehicles? Well, Loblaws will rely on Gaz Métro, a company that specializes in fuelling stations with LNG, which plans to open up a new station in Cornwall, ON by the end of 2013.

The company will also have access to a mobile refueling station with around 6,000 gallons available to them.

Loblaws will be taking delivery of their new trucks in mid-August.
