ACT Expo – The Largest Clean Fleet Event Returns to Southern California

April 11, 2019

Now in its ninth—and largest—year, the Advanced Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo is convening stakeholders from across the transportation industry, April 22 through 26 in Southern California, to showcase the real-world application of the latest transportation technologies, drivetrains, and clean fuels. ACT Expo is the only fleet-focused event that pairs content-rich educational sessions covering the latest opportunities and challenges facing the on-road trucking sector with a packed trade show floor featuring all of the cutting-edge technologies on the market today.

Early numbers show that this year’s event will bring together a record breaking 4,000+ attendees, including more than 1,000 fleet operators and buyers, hundreds of C-suite level executives from leading OEMs and tier 1 suppliers, and every major fuel and infrastructure provider spanning the alternative fuel and electric charging landscape.

Each year, different fuels, technologies and projects may make headlines and generate industry-wide buzz, however, ACT Expo outlasts the trends and remains the preeminent destination covering all alternative fuels and advanced technologies. From ultra-low emission heavy-duty natural gas engines and battery electric trucks and buses, to class 8 hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, this is an exciting time to be at the forefront of innovation and witness an industry transform.

At this year’s show, nearly 300 sponsors and exhibitors from innovative startups and industry giants, such as presenting sponsors Penske, Daimler, and Meritor, will take over the Long Beach Convention Center, giving fleet managers an opportunity to explore a multitude of vehicles, equipment, and advanced technologies. The expo hall show floor will showcase the latest fuels and technologies across all applications and weight classes—EVs, HEVs and PHEVs, LNG, CNG, and propane autogas, biofuels, vehicle charging and refueling technology, equipment and station providers, and more.

We are seeing a new era for zero and near zero emission fleet technologies due to changing regulations, advancements in engine and drivetrain technologies, and ambitious sustainability goals. California’s expansion of the Low Carbon Fuel Standard program in January has set a new precedent for states across the country and offers a greater market incentive to work towards lower emissions than we have ever seen. ACT Expo 2019 is ground zero for where this funding will be spent, how to capitalize on these new opportunities, and what technologies are on the market.

This year, we are excited to welcome Roger Nielsen, President and CEO, Daimler Trucks North America, who will be welcoming attendees on Wednesday with an opening keynote address focused on how Daimler is leading the development of zero-emission electric and ultra-low-emission natural gas trucks.

We crafted an exciting four-day program covering a range of topics and offering solutions to help fleet managers navigate regulations, secure new sources of funding, and scale operations efficiently and cost effectively.

While ACT Expo always has a lot of content-rich, technical programming, this year there we are kicking off the show with a Clean Fuel Vehicle Bootcamp to get back to the basics for those who are new to the industry or those looking for a refresher course.

In partnership with Fleet Owner, ACT Expo will host a first-of-its-kind Workforce Development Workshop that will discuss the significant need to ensure we have a skilled workforce to support rapidly evolving vehicles and fuels. The workshop will bring together fleets, training professionals, and workforce development leaders on how to develop and keep a trained team to support these changing needs.

With new light, medium, and heavy-duty vehicle technology flooding newsfeeds, fleet managers can easily get overwhelmed by the plethora of new options and the pace of innovation. Breakout sessions offer fleet managers invaluable one-stop shop Technology Showcases providing fleet managers with a closer look at the real, reliable, and commercially available technologies that will best fit their fleet’s unique needs.

To craft this year’s program, we have partnered with some of industry’s most respected associations including The U.S. Department of Energy Clean Cities, North American Council on Trucking Efficiency, Electrification Coalition, California Hydrogen Business Council, Business for Social Responsibility, Pacific Merchant Shipping Association, Propane Education & Research Council, Natural Gas Vehicles for America, and more.

To ensure relevant content for ACT Expo’s fleet attendees, this year’s program is crafted in partnership with several high-volume fleets, including FexEx, UPS, PepsiCo, Sysco, and many others.
