How decarbonization is re-shaping trucking

The show might be over but the truck equipment conversations continue.

Every year, ACT Expo has been heralding a new era in trucking decarbonization equipment and strategies. Two years ago was the coming-out party for battery electric trucks, last year was when those trucks grew up and got a job in real applications and this year … well that’s what we discuss in this final wrap-up episode of Fleet Equipment From the Floor ACT Expo 2023. We talk about battery electric charging infrastructure needs, increasingly aggressive California regulations, battery management strategies and technology and the road ahead for zero emission truck equipment and technology.

We also connect with José Samperio, vice president and general manager of North America on-highway at Cummins.

“There were a number of things that stood out on the show floor to me. Number one was that there are a number of different technologies that are close to being available in the market,” Samperio shared. Watch the episode above for his insight into how he sees these technologies impacting trucking equipment decisions going forward.
