Electric Truck Bootcamp #6: Maintenance, Training & Safety

In partnership with:

Electric trucks require new maintenance plans and protocols and new training programs for technicians. Safety must continue to be a priority, particularly when working in high-voltage environments. Join NACFE and industry experts to learn more about how the industry is planning to train technicians, drivers, and more to safely operate electric trucks while maximizing uptime.


The Electric Truck Bootcamp is a 10-part educational series on electric trucks — hosted by the North American Council for Freight Efficiency (NACFE) and RMI — for fleet managers, utility planners, policymakers, and more. While the Run on Less – Electric event this September is focused on today’s fleet and OEM leaders who have electric trucks already in operation, the Electric Truck Bootcamp is designed with “fast followers” in mind, to:
  • Increase industry awareness of electric trucks
  • Provide professional development opportunities to decision-makers at all stages of their electrification journey
  • Synthesize quick takeaways and recommendations from NACFE and RMI’s electric truck work to date
  • Convene fleets and other stakeholders across the electric truck ecosystem to discuss key opportunities and challenges as they plan for future deployments of electric vehicles
