Green Truck Summit, a leading alternative fuels and advanced technology conference, offers expert insights on how the commercial vehicle industry can make an immediate impact on greenhouse gas and criteria pollutant reduction. Scheduled March 6–8, 2018, this event is held during Work Truck Week in conjunction with Fleet Technical Congress and The Work Truck Show® 2018 (March 6–9 at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, Indiana). Fleet Technical Congress and Work Truck Show educational sessions begin March 6, and the exhibit hall is open March 7–9.

Regulatory agencies, fleet managers, commercial vehicle manufacturers, and stakeholders from industry trade associations and professional societies will all contribute to the dialogue at the 2018 Green Truck Summit. John Davis, creator, host and executive producer of MotorWeek, returns as event emcee. This year’s program covers government, fleet and supplier perspectives on work truck productivity; what’s next in technology and fuel for fleets; commercial vehicle efficiency insights and opportunities; obtaining advanced technology approval and selecting alternative fuels; finding available local, state and federal funds; and next steps for the future of work trucks.

Opening day of the conference features six general sessions, starting with Government, Fleet and Supplier Perspectives on Future Work Truck Productivity. This presentation will address how government, industry and end users plan to achieve greater fuel efficiency. Attendees will get a better understanding of how current regulations and available options will influence commercial vehicle purchases and productivity in the long-term.
