Trucking Efficiency, a joint effort of The North American Council for Freight Efficiency (NACFE) and Carbon War Room (CWR), has formed an expanded partnership with the 2015 Alternative Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo to provide greater emphasis on trucking efficiency at North America’s largest clean fleet event. Trucking Efficiency is an industry collaboration that aims to double the freight efficiency of North American goods movement. The 2015 ACT Expo will contribute to the mission, gathering thousands of clean transportation stakeholders at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas from May 4 to 7, 2015.
“Given the collaborative nature of the event, ACT Expo is an ideal venue to actively engage fleet managers, OEMs and manufacturers on the range of efficiency technologies available in the market today,” says NACFE Executive Director Mike Roeth. “I look forward to exploring these efficiency solutions with the fleets and manufacturers attending ACT Expo, and helping fleets go farther with their fuel.”
NACFE and CWR’s commitment to ACT Expo reinforces the industry’s increased focus on efficiency technologies as an integral part of the advanced clean vehicle discussion. Accelerating the adoption of technologies and improving practices focused on efficiency – including aerodynamic improvement systems, idle-reduction strategies, 6×2 axles, tire pressure monitoring systems, and driver training programs among other measures – will enable fleets to improve productivity, save fuel, and meet emissions standards.
Programming at the 2015 ACT Expo will include a trucking efficiency track to explore these technologies and discuss the benefits and challenges of their adoption. The four-day event will also feature a dedicated “Trucking Efficiency Showcase” in the expo hall to display a diverse array of heavy-duty efficiency technologies.
