EV Bizz: UPS takes its next step toward carbon-neutrality with the Freightliner eCascadia trucks
Advanced Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo announced Mathias Carlbaum, president and CEO of Navistar Inc., as a keynote speaker at this year’s show, which is returning to the Long Beach Convention Center in Southern California from May 9-12, 2022. Carlbaum will share his perspectives on the rapid changes taking place across the fleet transportation sector, including how electrification, connectivity, and autonomous technologies are shaping the future of the industry. Carlbaum will also discuss the industry’s accelerated transition to zero- and ultra-low-emission commercial vehicles and offer his insight into what this means for fleets and OEMs as demand increases at an astounding pace.
ACT Expo will showcase the increasingly wide array of vehicles spanning all weight classes, applications, and fuel types, including battery-electric, hydrogen fuel cell, propane, and natural gas vehicles, along with autonomous and connected technologies and renewable fuels, the organizers noted in a press release.
The four-day, fleet-focused agenda will spotlight the acceleration taking place across the advanced transportation and clean energy sectors. Through keynotes, breakout sessions, and workshops, attendees will gain insight into the business case and changing dynamics driving fleets to invest in advanced clean transportation solutions, including: a growing availability of low- and zero-emission vehicles; increased availability and consumption of renewable low carbon fuels; financial incentives, policies, regulations and other initiatives to rapidly expand clean fueling and charging infrastructure; a rapid acceleration in corporate sustainability commitments; and much more.
