Transport Canada (TC) and the Canadian Trucking Alliance (CTA) are requesting input from CTA members to support a national Heavy Duty Vehicle Tire Market Study.
Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) recently proposed a second phase of regulations to further reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from heavy-duty vehicles, and one of the technology options available for complying with GHG emission requirements is low rolling resistance (LRR) tires.
After working with CTA, Transport Canada understands that Canadian stakeholders may have different preferences for LRR tires than in other jurisdictions, and the department has retained Cheminfo Services Inc. and the North American Council for Freight Efficiency (NACFE) to conduct a Heavy-Duty Vehicle Tire Market Study.
Carriers can take the opportunity to share tire requirements with the Government of Canada by contacting John Cameron at Cheminfo Services Inc. to participate in the study. [email protected]
