Mathias Carlbaum, president and CEO of Navistar, will be a keynote speaker at the Advanced Clean Transportation Expo at the Long Beach Convention Center May 9-12.

Carlbaum was named CEO last fall, succeeding Persio Lisboa, after the Traton purchase of Navistar.

At ACT Expo, Carlbaum will share his perspectives on the rapid changes taking place across the fleet transportation sector, including how electrification, connectivity, and autonomous technologies are shaping the future of the industry. He will discuss the industry’s accelerated transition to zero- and ultra-low-emission commercial vehicles and offer his insight into what this means for fleets and OEMs as demand increases at an astounding pace. 

“This is a decisive year for our industry. I’m convinced the North American market will lead a revolution in commercial transportation, and I’m excited to share my vision with the ACT Expo audience,” he said in an ACT Expo news release. “Sustainability is a key driver as we work to reimagine the way people and goods are moved. Navistar is committed to using proven engineering and leading technology to take mobility and transport to the next level, enabling prosperity in our communities for generations to come.”

Navistar manufactures International commercial trucks and engines and IC Bus school and commercial buses. At ACT Expo it will display a lineup of its latest advanced clean vehicles, which use connected tech and zero-emission power systems along with other technologies to create value for fleet operators.

ACT Expo will showcase the increasingly wide array of vehicles spanning all weight classes, applications, and fuel types, including battery-electric, hydrogen fuel cell, propane, and natural gas vehicles, along with autonomous and connected technologies and renewable fuels. 

The four-day, fleet-focused agenda will spotlight the acceleration taking place across the advanced transportation and clean energy sectors.
