The Green Truck Summit, a part of Work Truck Week, held March 6–9 at Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, Indiana will focus on the importance of zero-emission transportation and new intiatives in the space.

“The goal of zero-emission transportation goes beyond just electric driving, and is an industry-wide goal for many, one which we’ve made great strides toward recently,” says Doyle Sumrall, NTEA managing director. “As we continue to focus on achieving that goal in the future, this year’s Green Truck Summit will address immediate, practical steps the work truck industry can take to mitigate negative environmental effects while maximizing truck performance, longevity and the bottom line via alternative fuels, pollutant reduction, advanced technology developments and increased-efficiency practices.”

Green Truck Summit kicks off March 6 at 8:30 a.m. with general sessions addressing the following key topics:

Green Truck Summit attendees can select from 48 concurrent sessions, with discussions focused on increasing work truck productivity and efficiency; technology advancements across the industry, especially in relation to automation and connectivity; fuel advancements, alternatives and related costs; and vehicle weight reduction and the impact on emissions and pollutants.

In addition to the educational sessions, the Work Truck Show exhibit hall will be open March 7–9, featuring 500 exhibitors, and including the Productivity and Fuels Pavilion, which showcases companies displaying clean technologies and fuel utilization reduction solutions.
