Salt Lake City – C.R. England has opened a new IdleAir facility at its terminal at 8422 Amparan Road in Laredo, Texas. The 24-space IdleAir facility provides C.R. England drivers in-cab services that provide heating and air conditioning, internet connectivity, television and 110-volt electrical connections. The company held an open house to celebrate the opening Feb. 4.
IdleAir developed a customized facility designed around the needs of C.R. England and its operation at the Laredo terminal.
"The Laredo terminal is a key operating hub in the C.R. England network," said David Akers, president of C.R. England's Mexico Division. "Hundreds of trucks roll through this terminal each week. The extreme heat in Laredo during several months of the year make tractor idling inevitable. Making in-terminal IdleAir available to our drivers and independent contractors creates multiple efficiencies through reduction of fuel-burn, optimization of drivers hours of service, and reduction of carbon footprint."
Reducing idling saves fuel and associated maintenance costs, and provides drivers with a cleaner, quieter more relaxing rest environment.
