Freight Matters Webinar: How Electric Trucks, Big Data, and Connectivity are Changing the Freight Industry

Learn about the Freight Matters Webinar Series with EPA SmartWay This is the first webinar of the 2018 SmartWay Freight Matters! webinar series.  E-commerce, technology acceleration and increasing demand are driving the freight industry to innovate, address changing customer expectations, improve freight productivity and achieve greater supply chain efficiency. To stay ahead, companies are collaborating with logistics service providers and vehicle and equipment manufacturers to invest in solutions that will help move their products and supplies as quickly, safely and efficiently as possible.

This one-hour webcast will provide insights into technology’s growing influence on transportation and the emergence of electric trucks in last mile, less-than-truckload, and long-haul deliveries. It will help you understand the impact of these changes on the efficiency and sustainability of your company’s freight operations, today, and in the future.

Viewers will learn about:

  • Mega-trends that are improving freight efficiency, logistics management and sustainability
  • The emergence of all-electric truck applications in last-mile, less-than truckload and long-haul delivery
