GREEN BAY, Wis., Nov. 30, 2012
GREEN BAY, Wis., Nov. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Breakthrough^®Fuel, a leading
national supply chain management and energy advisory firm, has launched a new
product which will allow shippers to accurately measure natural gas fuel costs
associated with moving company freight throughout the North American market.
"We heard from our clients that they wanted a solution similar to our diesel
Fuel Recovery products that allow them to manage and project costs associated
with using natural gas as a transportation fuel," said Craig Dickman, CEO of
Breakthrough®Fuel. "The Natural Gas Fuel Recovery product is a perfect
complement to our other, patented fuel management tools. The response has been
In the past five years, natural gas has become an increasingly attractive
source of fuel for the commercial transportation market. It's not unusual to
see commercial vehicles using Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) or Compressed
Natural Gas (CNG) as a fuel source. There are a number of reasons behind the
trend. "Natural gas tends to be a lower cost and price-stable alternative to
diesel fuel," explained Dickman. "The supply generally comes from within
North America and there's more than 200 years' worth of the current supply at
hand." Natural gas as a fuel is also becoming more convenient to use as truck
stops across the U.S. are adding or building natural gas refueling stations.
Another advantage is that natural gas has up to 21% less emissions than
ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel. "Anytime you can lessen your carbon footprint,
that's a good thing," Dickman stated. "As companies become more focused on
sustainability, they are moving toward using both natural gas and diesel as
fuel sources for shipping. With our products we can help them measure, manage
and project their costs, which helps improve their bottom line."
