The Green Truck Association announced the official launch of its website at www.greentruckassociation.com, which the group says functions as the central clearinghouse for the development and deployment of green trucks.
An affiliate division of the National Truck Equipment Association, the Green Truck Association was established in the spring of 2010 in recognition of the growing interest and demand for green products within the work truck industry. GTA helps fleets, manufacturers, upfitters, government agencies and other industry stakeholders stay up-to-date with relevant regulatory and industry developments, while also helping to expand and improve the market for green truck applications.
“We are pleased to offer vital resources and tools to highlight the latest developments, information and research in this evolving and growing industry,” says Doyle Sumrall, GTA managing director. “The GTA is fully committed to moving the green truck industry forward and to supporting the companies who share this same vision.”
On the GTA website, information about green products and technologies relating to the commercial truck industry is updated daily, including the latest industry news and information, technical resources, legislative and regulatory activity, market data and industry statistics, research findings, education and training opportunities, an extensive glossary of terms, a helpful list of key industry links and a member directory.
Also listed on the GTA website is the newly appointed board of directors that governs the association’s affairs and is responsible for setting policy and developing strategy for the organization. Members of the inaugural board are David Bryant, vocational sales manager, Hybrids at Freightliner Trucks; Bill Burns, fleet operations manager, City of Columbus, Ohio; Joseph T. Dalum, president of Odyne Systems and executive vice president of DUECO; Dimitri Kazarinoff, vice president and general manager of Eaton Corp.’s Hybrid Power Systems Division; and Todd Mouw, vice president of sales and marketing at Roush Performance.
The GTA website is the association’s central channel of communication with its members, with designated members-only areas providing more in-depth levels of knowledge and insights. A broad range of whitepapers, technical information, new product updates and industry-related articles are available exclusively to members.
