First Summit on Natural Gas in Trucking Announced

The American Trucking Associations will host it Nov. 28-30 in Arlington, Va. ATA's CEO promised it "will come to be thought of as an important mile marker on the road to increased natural gas use in trucking."

The American Trucking Associations will host what it describes as the first-ever summit on all issues related to the use of natural gas in the trucking industry. "There has been a great deal of discussion about natural gas, but until now, no one has brought together all the pieces of the puzzle to show the whole picture. This summit will accomplish exactly that," ATA President and CEO Bill Graves said June 27.

The ATA Summit on Natural Gas in Trucking will be held Nov. 28-30 in Arlington, Va. The announcement said it will address recent fleet experiences, current and future technology from truck and engine manufacturers, vehicle maintenance, the timeline for expanding the nation's fueling infrastructure, and views from members of Congress and other government policymakers.

"We live in an age of great uncertainty regarding the supply and cost of traditional fuels like gasoline and diesel, a fact that, when coupled with the enormous pressure our industry faces to reduce our environmental impact and reduce costs makes natural gas a very intriguing and frankly very promising avenue for trucking," Graves said. "As a result, we expect this natural gas summit not just to be attended by a whole host of leading executives from trucking, manufacturing, the energy sector, and the government, but we expect it will come to be thought of as an important mile marker on the road to increased natural gas use in trucking."

Registration for the event opens for ATA members on July 2 and general registration will begin in August. For more information, call the summit hotline at 703-838-1935 or email natgas@trucking.org.
