The U.S. Freight Sustainability Summit: Growing the Economy, Protecting the Environment and Improving Energy Efficiency" begins today and continues Friday at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington D.C.


The Diesel Technology Forum sponsors the event along with other organizations and summit co-hosts: the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Environmental Defense Fund, the American Trucking Associations and the Retail Leaders Industry Association.

"We are pleased to have worked with EPA and other industry partners on this national freight summit that will include officials ranging from federal and state transportation and environmental agencies to representatives from the freight and economic sectors of the U.S.," said Allen Schaeffer, the Executive Director of the Diesel Technology Forum. "Diesel is the prime mover of virtually every mode of freight transportation today and its transformation to a new low-emissions technology makes it a key technology for sustainable goods movement in the future."
