NTEA and Calstart Get Ready for Indianapolis in March

The National Truck Equipment Association and Calstart are getting ready for a double-barreled gathering that’s fast becoming something of an institution in Indianapolis: the sprawling Work Truck Show and preceding Green Truck Summit, being held March 5-8 at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis.

The Green Truck Summit, to be held March 5-6, will include plenary sessions plus two dozen breakouts “covering all aspects of green fleet technology and fuels.” Navistar International is a key sponsor.

Last year’s Summit saw a pre-Work Truck Show walk-around by U.S. Energy Secretary Steven Chu.

NTEA’s Work Truck Show, March 6-8, will feature more than 550 exhibitors on upwards of 500,000 square feet of exhibit space dedicated to vocational trucks and equipment, and more than 60 educational sessions on “top-of-mind” industry issues – plus a green truck ride-and-drive.

OEMs and Upfitters Both

Last year’s Work Truck Show saw introduction of Chrysler’s bi-fuel CNG Ram pickup and of Freightliner Customer Chassis Corp’s dedicated-propane S2G vehicle, as well as other alt fuel offerings by upfitters and OEMs alike – with electric drive vehicles and add-ons to boot.
