Webinar March 25: Accelerating the EV Market
Medium and Heavy Duty Trucks
Electric trucks are already on the road, breaking into freight and logistics industries, but what are retail and trucking companies saying about them, and how do they weigh transition costs? Fleet owners and managers now have a new cost of ownership tool and two reports that highlight potential solutions to adoption barriers and share insights from companies that have piloted electric truck projects. This webinar will review these new reports and explore options for lowering adoption costs, the supply chain importance of electrifying medium- and heavy-duty trucking, and the potential for climate pollution reductions in the largest emitting sector of the U.S. economy.
