The State of Sustainable Fleets

In this episode, we zoom out a bit from the electric truck discussion and talk about alternative fuels and sustainability in general. Why might fleets be interested, and how do they get started?

A recently released study tackled some of those questions. The “State of Sustainable Fleets” report from Gladstein, Neandross & Associates, and sponsored by Daimler Trucks North America, Penske, Shell and Exelon Corp., was released in mid-August. You can hear from each of those sponsors in the episode.
