NTEA Creates New Green Truck Association

September 28, 2010

The Green Truck Association (GTA) affiliate of the National Truck Equipment Association (NTEA) is established to recognize growing interest in and demand for green products in the work truck industry. The NTEA intends for the new association to serve as a comprehensive resource for green products and technologies relating to the commercial truck industry. 

The stated goal of the GTA is to provide fleets, manufacturers, upfitters, government agencies and other industry stakeholders with the latest news on green trucks, comprehensive technical resources, an extensive member directory, a library of publications and white papers revealing technical research, a detailed guide to green truck technologies, green truck market data, updates on legislative and regulatory activity, insights into government activities and funding opportunities and education and training opportunities.

NTEA announced formation of the new association at its Green Truck Summit this week.

“Creating an affiliate division specifically focused on green trucks is a natural extension of the work the NTEA began in this area with the launch of the Green Truck Summit a few years ago,” said Andrew Outcalt, NTEA president and president of Meyer Products and Swenson Spreader of Cleveland, Ohio. “As interest and demand for green products continues to grow within the work truck industry, we are positioning the association and our members to provide the support and insight needed to drive ongoing technology improvements and increase awareness of real-world applications.”
