ACT Shipper-Carrier Connect is a two-day event for North America’s leading shippers and brands and their carrier and logistics partners to discuss efforts and progress toward transportation sustainability goals. This first-of-its-kind event will assemble high-level executives from across the logistics community to learn more about investments in clean fleet operations and how those efforts can translate into compliance and the achievement of ESG targets. Shippers aiming to reduce their transportation and distribution greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by partnering with their carriers and logistics providers should attend. Fleets and freight forwarders who need to better understand their customers’ needs, benchmark against others in the industry, and learn best practices for sustainability strategies and reporting should also attend.

Fleet, fuel, infrastructure, and procurement managers that want education on the state of technology, best practices, and lessons learned on zero- and near-zero vehicles and fueling infrastructure should register for an ACT Expo full conference pass and add Shipper-Carrier Connect.
