NTEA is pleased to announce Dr. Wilfried Achenbach, senior vice president of engineering and technology for Daimler Trucks North America, will serve as keynote speaker at the 2017 Green Truck Summit. His address, which takes place Tuesday, March 14, will offer insights into the technology, energy and environmental issues that will shape the future of the work truck industry.

Achenbach is responsible for all product engineering and planning functions, including design, testing, styling, analysis and compliance.
