Fuel Efficiency & Technology Adoption

Dave Schaller, Industry Engagement Director, North American Council for Freight Efficiency Although the fuel prices are reasonable now, we have every reason to believe that within the year, fuel prices will be higher due to a change in maritime shipping emissions laws that may have large ships using the same diesel that the trucking industry uses! NACFE has developed a wealth of information on the subject and the majority of it is free to use from our website for all of your fleets and suppliers.

Expedite Expo 2020

Expedite Expo 2020 Rescheduled

The staff of Expedite Expo has made the difficult decision to reschedule Expedite Expo 2020. We feel the climate will not be ready for a group meeting at this time. The health, safety and security of our staff, attendees and exhibitors is very important to us.

Expedite Expo has been rescheduled from July 17-18 to October 23-24, in Fort Wayne, IN. The event will continue to be held at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum. 

We look forward to seeing everyone come together in October.
