A panel discussion held Wednesday at the Commercial Vehicle Outlook Conference looked at current fuel economy trends in the North American Class 8 market.

Our sister site, CCJ, reported panelists concluded that while exciting new technologies are on the horizon that could one day boost heavy-duty truck efficiencies, recent projects, such as the EPA-sponsored SuperTruck program, are already yielding substantial, verifiable, real-world improvements.

Moderated by David Kaufman, chief operating officer for Mission Motors moderated the panel, which included Craig Bennett, Vice President, sales and marketing for Utility Trailer, Jim Fier, chief engineer, on-highway engines, Cummins Engine Co., David Hames, general manager, marketing and strategy, Daimler Trucks North America and Max Fuller, chairman and chief executive officer for U.S. Express.
