Bimbo Bakeries Adds Leased CNG Trucks

Bimbo Bakeries USA is leasing 16 natural gas trucks for its California trucking fleet.

Bimbo has a fueling agreement in place with Clean Energy Fuels to fuel the fleet of Class 8, heavy duty trucks using Clean Energy's network of public-access CNG stations throughout Northern California.

Bimbo was recently given $789,000 from a Pennsylvania alternative fuels grant to convert 81 delivery trucks to CNG, but a representative from Clean Energy Fuels said that the fleet being leased in California was not related to those grant funds.

Bimbo Bakeries is the largest bakery company in the United States, producing brands like Sarah Lee, Thomas’, and Boboli. Based the success of this initial investment, Bimbo will explore options for adding more natural gas trucks to its fleet which serves over 65 bakeries nationwide.
