The deadline for nominating a fleet for Heavy Duty Trucking's Top 50 Green Fleets has been extended through the end of the month to Friday, August 29.

HDT is looking for fleets that have made a commitment to sustainability, alternative fuels, lowering greenhouse gas emissions and increasing fuel economy in innovative ways.

The program honors fleets that are "green" in many ways -- and not just in vehicle emissions, but also those who have committed to greener facilities or  recycling programs.

To nominate a fleet (or enter your own), fill out a short online survey with basic information about the the fleet, its alternative fuel use and SmartWay participation. There is also room to make additional comments for any “green” projects outside of that.

All sizes and types of fleets are encouraged to enter.

The top green fleets will be featured in the November issue of HDT and on You can view last year's list here.

The top green fleets will be invited to attend the Green Fleet Conference in Schaumburg, Ill. Oct. 29-30. at a discounted rate. Those who do attend will be recognized during a general session at the conference.
