Welcome to Clean Trucking!

Clean Trucking

In a diesel-driven world, where can you find reliable information on emerging alternative power technologies as the commercial vehicle market begins the evolution to cleaner transportation solutions?

Welcome to Clean Trucking, your new knowledge hub for news, analysis and insights on the trucking industry’s transition to alternative power technologies. Brought to you by the editors of Commercial Carrier Journal, Overdrive and Trucks, Parts, Service, Clean Trucking’s coverage will focus on all aspects of trucking, including dealer sales and support, carrier adoption strategies and applications for small fleets and independent contractors.

The cornerstone of our coverage is the 2023 Hydrogen Fuel Cell & Battery-Electric Vehicle Survey of more than 400 fleet executives, independent contractors and leased owner-operators to gauge their level of interest and understanding of the alternative power marketplace. The unvarnished survey results reveal decision-makers’ skepticism, concerns and expectations for near-term and long-range adoption and deployment of the two leading technologies.

Clean Trucking will explore use cases for battery-electric, hydrogen fuel cell and alternative fuel technologies across every segment of trucking. We will discuss the opportunities and operational limitations of various technologies, including charging/fueling infrastructure developments, maintenance considerations, resale value and total cost of ownership.

Our editors will also provide test-drive reviews and interview early adopters that are putting these new trucks into use today and keep you updated on regulatory and legislative activity that influence the rate and scope of trucking’s conversion to low- and zero-emissions trucks.

Thank you for visiting Clean Trucking, where we promise to deliver today’s news for tomorrow’s trucks. We hope that you’ll make our coverage part of your regular industry news consumption. Please sign up for Clean Trucking’s newsletter and follow us on Facebook, X (formerly Twitter) and Instagram. We look forward to continuing the conversation around the exciting and rapidly developing world of alternative power in trucking.
