Newport Business Media announced its 2012 HDT Truck Fleet Innovators. Since 2006, each year the editors of Heavy Duty Trucking have honored a group of select industry leaders for their innovation in various areas.
“These four fleet executives work in different segments of the industry, but they all have one thing in common,” said Editor in Chief Deborah Lockridge. “They are leaders in adopting equipment specs and practices that are ‘FuelSmart,'” she said, a moniker which also refers to the name of a department and website section HDT launched last year.
The four will be featured on a panel discussion during next week’s Mid-America Trucking Show Fleet Forum in Louisville, Ky., put on by HDT, Fleet Owner magazine and MATS. HDT Equipment Editor Jim Park will moderate the discussion of fuel-saving strategies, how they evaluate different technologies and methods, and what they see as the next steps for “FuelSmart” fleets.
