As previously announced, the Canadian Trucking Alliance (CTA), in partnership with the provincial trucking associations, is conducting a series of consultation workshops with carriers and suppliers across the country to discuss fuel efficiency and vehicle specifications related to pending U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Environment Canada regulations.
The OTA portion of the cross-country tour will take place Tuesday June 2from 10 am to 12 noon at OTA’s offices in Toronto.
The purpose of the OTA event will focus on details of regional operating conditions and the preferences carriers have in spec’ing their tractors, engines and trailers from a fuel efficiency perspective. In addition, CTA and OTA would like input from the carrier community on what leading edge technologies they are looking at implementing which they would prefer to avoid in the short-to- medium term.
A copy of the agenda and participation guide for the workshop is attached so attendees can have an advanced understanding of the concepts that will be discussed. Carriers and suppliers wish to attend this event can register by clicking here. The workshop is free of charge, but space is limited so register today.
All input from the workshop series will be captured and consolidated in a CTA position paper on the future of the GHG regulation in Canada and its impact on Canadian heavy truck equipment. This paper will be released in the Fall of 2015.
