Their support is critical to securing the legislative and regulatory changes required to preserve the natural systems that people, communities and companies need to thrive.
Freight moved via truck accounts for the majority of logistics-related emissions; by increasing the efficiency of heavy trucks, consumer goods companies and others will meaningfully reduce supply chain climate emissions. Further, fuel has long been a major expense for trucking, accounting for nearly 40% of per-mile cost; more efficient trucks lower lifecycle costs significantly, and reduce per-mile freight costs by 20 cents.
For business leaders – especially those that rely on trucks to get their products to market – the latest opportunity to make their voice heard is now, with the recent release of the EPA and NHTSA’s proposed heavy-truck fuel efficiency and greenhouse gas emissions standards. The proposed standards will protect our air quality and the climate overall, while also reducing shipping costs.
