ACT Research seminar to address emissions, technology

ACT Research’s 59th commercial vehicle seminar, scheduled Aug. 20-22, 2018, in Columbus, Ind., will feature a variety of speakers from different commercial vehicle perspectives, all discussing how emission regulations and constantly changing technology are impacting their business and the industry at large.

“Seminar 59 is on target to be our best yet, with approximately 20 speakers, four panels and two breakout sessions scheduled so far. Our economic panel will discuss the impacts of the U.S. and global economies on the transportation industry, while our dealer panelists will address how dealers are keeping up with the rapidly changing world of technology, from service to communications to products, diesel to electric to connectivity,” says Ken Vieth, ACT senior partner and general manager. “The other two panels will consider the role of electrification, alternative fuels and zero emissions in today’s commercial vehicle world, as well as how industry leaders see each impacting the industry’s future.”

Vieth notes, “Our two breakout sessions will give attendees the option to learn more about the U.S. trailer market for the North American medium-duty vehicle market and, of course, we’ll also have featured speakers discussing the current and forecasted state of the heavy-duty market, freight, the used truck market and rail’s perspective on transportation.”
