GHG Phase 2 Mandate - Affects on Heavy Duty Truck Fleets
A competitive advantage goes to the business visionaries that act faster than the competition to changes in the market providing a greater value at a lower cost. The initial Greenhouse Gas mandates have already saved Class 8 transportation fleets millions of dollars in operating costs by reducing fuel consumption. On August 16, 2016 the federal government passed the proposed regulation, GHG Phase 2, to further tighten emissions and improve fuel economy for heavy duty trucks by up to 25% from 2017 through 2027 model years.
The GHG Phase 2 final rule, issued by the US EPA and the NHTSA also contains the first-ever federal efficiency standards for new trailers.
