Emerging Technology

Trucking is on the cusp of major changes; our guidance reports explore up and coming technologies that will positively impact fuel economy.

Electric Trucks

An Overview

A foundation for understanding the key arguments for and against this rapidly evolving powertrain alternative.

Autonomous Vehicles

Self-Driving Efficiency

Advancements in technologies that enable vehicles to be self-driving have progressed significantly.

Trucking is on the cusp of major changes with technological developments occurring at a dizzying pace.  It can be difficult to sift through all the information — which often can be conflicting — to find the right data that will help fleets make the best decision about which technologies to deploy.

Several years ago, NACFE began exploring these emerging technologies using the same approach it uses for its Confidence Reports on existing technologies.

We have now developed Guidance Reports that explore these emerging technologies and how they will impact freight efficiency.

To date, our work has focused on electric trucks and autonomous vehicles, but we are poised to issue Guidance Reports on other technology as needed.
