Green Fleet

2013 Green Fleet Conference is a Hit with Attendees

November 2013, Government Fleet - Feature

by Chris Wolski - Also by this author

More than 600 fleet managers and stakeholders invested in fleet sustainability took part in this year’s Green Fleet Conference in Phoenix, which was held October 1-2 at the Phoenix Convention Center.

The conference was kicked off by Washington, D.C., Attorney Kipp Coddington with the timely topic of “What Should You Expect in President Obama’s Second Term?” The answer, according to Coddington, in a word is “gridlock,” a connection made even more relevant due to that morning’s shutdown of the federal government. 

Concurrent sessions were organized around several learning tracks, including the first-ever heavy-duty truck track, giving attendees an opportunity to drill down into the nuts and bolts of reducing idling, how to implement electric vehicles into a fleet, and getting the lowdown on the new green trucks being introduced on the market.

Also, during the October 2 breakfast, Green Fleet magazine recognized its 40 Sustainability All-Stars. The Government Green Fleets and the ROUSH CleanTech Propane Hero were also honored.
