FuelQuest Inc has announced a five-year contract with Salt Lake City UT-based C R England Inc, the temperature-controlled carrier specializing in moving temperature-sensitive freight such as fresh produce, meat, dairy products, and beverages.
Under the agreement, FuelQuest Fuel Center will provide outsourced fuel management services for C R England’s bulk fueling locations, reducing overall fuel costs and improving operational efficiency.
