Zero-emission vehicles are here, but the solutions to support them at scale are not. Learn how Voltera is making clean transportation at scale a reality.
In this conversation, Vice President of ACT Research Ann Rundle and FreightWaves’ Mary O’Connell sit down to explore the findings of the new ACT Research decarbonization forecast report, that sheds light on the projected emissions reductions, economic implications, and infrastructure challenges associated with the adoption of electric, hydrogen, and biofuel-powered commercial vehicles.
Swedish startup Einride is reducing the carbon footprint of its commercial trucking customers by making sure that electric trucks not only have a place to charge but the availability to charge when needed. The enemy is dwell time. It has a different definition but results in the same inefficient outcome as the one that plagues traditional fleets.
From designing energy-efficient industrial buildings to integrating game-changing innovations, Sam Stockdale and Mary O’Connell highlight the crucial role of data in solving complex sustainability challenges, revealing how real-time monitoring and predictive analytics are reshaping the way industries operate.
John McCaw, Vice President of Sustainability Solutions, joins the summit to discuss the evolution of shippers' thoughts and actions in transportation sustainability. He will share examples of how customers are moving from measurement estimates to actionable emission reductions.
In this fireside chat, Zeina El-Azzi, founder and CEO of Gage Zero joins us to talk about challenges and opportunities when creating equitable electrification outcomes.
The aviation industry is under growing pressure to reduce cargo emissions. Much focus is on developing capacity to produce sustainable aviation fuel, but real reductions will require new technologies and innovation. The air cargo sector is mostly riding the efforts of airlines and manufacturers, but a company called NOVAdev is rethinking the way air cargo can contribute to the carbon solution.
Rik Arends, Director of the Sustainable Freight Buyers Alliance at Smart Freight Centre, explains the importance of collaborative efforts across customers and competitors seeking to launch emission reduction projects. He will share real-world examples of projects that SABA and SFC are working on.
Matt McLelland, VP of Sustainability and Innovation at Covenant Logistics, talks to FreightWaves' Anthony Smith about the challenge to meet emissions targets that enterprise fleets will undergo and how consumers need to adjust.
Kaylee Nix talks to Dan Raudebaugh about how the Center for Transportation and the Environment has used planning strategies to execute electrification projects for decades & what their hopes look like for the future.
