NTEA’s Propane Truck Builders Association addresses regulatory initiatives and proposals

This article was published in the April 2017 edition of NTEA News.

Propane Truck Builders Association (PTBA), an NTEA affiliate division since 2007, represents the propane truck builder industry. It was formed to promote and serve common interests of propane truck builders in the development and use of safe, efficient propane delivery vehicles. PTBA members must meet stringent regulatory requirements in the building, inspection and repair of these hazardous-material vehicles. This group reviews and addresses the amount and complexity of federal government regulations with which propane truck builders must comply and brings a unified industry response to regulatory initiatives and proposals these companies must meet. In addition, PTBA helps propane truck buyers stay informed regarding regulatory compliance issues and the importance of using qualified builders and repair facilities. 

Members work with chassis manufacturers to best meet their customers’ needs, including on specification development for propane-powered chassis used in delivery segments.
