New Trucking Coalition Focuses on Clean Energy

A broad-based group representing motor carriers, truck manufacturers and truck dealers has launched a coalition intended to serve as a collective voice for key trucking industry stakeholders.

Members of the group, known as the Clean Freight Coalition, include American Trucking Associations, American Truck Dealers, National Tank Truck Carriers, Truckload Carriers Association and Truck & Engine Manufacturers Association, according to a March 23 announcement.

The coalition’s mission includes:
Educate policymakers on the progress the trucking industry has made in reducing emissions and protecting the environment.

Promote the work underway to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from freight transportation.

Advocate for sound public policies that transition toward a zero-emission future in a manner that ensures affordable and reliable freight transportation and protects the nation’s supply chain.

Jim Mullen will serve as CFC’s executive director.
