In the midst of a driver shortage and a trend toward more “hub and spoke logistics,” fleets are seeing a shift toward more dedicated regional haul routes. And with a new generation of Class 7 and 8 trucks — from everyone from Tesla to Daimler — hitting the market, it’s more important than ever that fleets are up-to-speed on the latest and greatest technology for saving money and reducing emissions. It is in this context that the North American Council for Freight Efficiency (NACFE) is putting together both the fourth guidance report in its series on commercial battery electric vehicles — this one focused on regional day cab tractors and the second Run On Less roadshow, also focused on regional routes. And we want YOUR help!
Join us for a dialogue about what we know so far, what lingering questions and challenges exist, and how the industry is planning to tackle them. Whether you’ve got solutions or lessons learned that you want to ensure make it into the report or you’ve got more questions than answers, you’re invited to make your voice heard as we discuss what fleets need to know in order to keep their drivers happy, while consuming less energy and stay competitive. Join the NACFE teams for a day and help us help the industry!
