Nominations Open for 2021 ACT Expo Fleet Awards

March 1, 2021

The Advanced Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo team and its supporting partner, the Propane Education and Research Council (PERC), has opened nominations for the prestigious ACT Expo Fleet Awards, which will be presented — live — at the 2021 ACT Expo from August 30 to September 2 at the Long Beach Convention Center.

The ACT Expo Fleet Awards recognize fleets that show true leadership in transportation and sustainability.

The awards were established to recognize fleets that show true leadership in transportation — going above and beyond the rest to achieve sustainability in their operations. This exclusive group and their aggressive emission reduction efforts are part of a growing, industry-wide adoption of new, cleaner technologies and practices.
