Trucking

The trucking industry is incredibly important to the economy and the industry is working on ways to improve their sustainability. Improving technology and practices translate to lower fuel usage and, sometimes, lower costs. The future of trucking will include hybrid and fully battery powered electric trucks and trucks that run on electrified roadways. Truck designs will become more aerodynamic. Driverless trucks will allow trucks to drive slower and more safely with lower overall travel times and better fuel efficiency.
