Sign up for Vehicle lightweighting — A critical path to success whitepaper


Vehicle operations are no exception to the continuous improvement goal of doing more while spending less. Reducing vehicle weight provides organizations with opportunities to keep enhancing operational efficiencies. Weight has direct influence on regulatory compliance for motor vehicle safety, emissions and Bridge Law limitations, in addition to operational elements such as motor carrier/driver requirements, maintenance and vehicle life cycle. It’s a critical factor in the acquisition process. This overview primarily focuses on vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of 10,000 pounds or less. Steve Spata, NTEA technical assistance director, discusses this topic.
