NACFE & More at Conference and Show in Dallas in May
And a Sneak-Peek Trucking Efficiency Webinar on April 15
ACT Expo is about alternative fuels but it’s also about efficiency. Conference partners including Walmart and Trucking Efficiency – a joint collaboration between the North American Council on Freight Efficiency and Carbon War Room – are urging clean transportation professionals to come to Texas and learn about the latest technologies that are helping fleets reduce both emissions and their fuel costs.
The Alternative Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo takes place May 4-7 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas.
