Freightliner Coronado Dual Fuel Glider

Freightliner Coronado Dual Fuel Glider

Freedom Transport is an authorized interstate and intrastate motor carrier operating from Illinois with a diverse fleet of trucks pulling end dumps, belly dumps, flatbeds, pneumatic tankers, tippers and liquid tankers, faithfully serving the mining, construction, manufacturing and waste hauling industries. They are a family owned business with a long history of providing the safe and cost efficient movement of freight.

This February, Freedom selected Baker Electromotive, Inc. and Landi Renzo USA as partners for the deployment of new Dual Fuel CNG (DNG) equipped Freightliner Class 8 glider trucks. By fueling with DNG,Freedom has an attractive return on investment, while reducing their consumption of diesel fuel.

Freedom is evaluating a combination of new dual fuel CNG trucks and dedicated CNG trucks in their fleet to achieve optimum fuels savings, driving range, and productivity. Baker has provided the first OEM-class DNG system of the ones that we have operated,” said Bob Orr, Freedom’s President.

In addition to a significant reduction in fuel cost, there is an associated reduction of emissions over the life of each truck. This reduction is accomplished in part by Landi Renzo’s EPA certified DNG conversion for the factory re-manufactured, pre-EGR, Detroit Diesel Series 60 with the 12.7L engine. These Freedom-owned, factory re-manufactured DNG engines now consume less diesel fuel and produce less emissions than the engines did when they originally rolled off the factory floor.

Having a Landi Renzo and Baker DNG product ensures that the Landi Renzo limited 3yr/300k mile warranty andFreedom’s reputation for reliable, cost-effective customer service remain intact.

Landi Renzo has over 60 years of global experience providing millions of alternative fuel systems to over 50 countries. Today, Landi Renzo USA and Baytech offer one of the broadest CARB & EPA certified NGV product portfolios available on the market, with total turnkey solutions on a variety of product platforms.
