Get Up to Speed on Fleet Advancements at North America’s Largest Work Truck Event

From March 5-8, North America’s largest work truck event – Work Truck Week – will take over the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis. Among this year’s offerings are the Green Truck Summit (March 5), educational sessions (March 5-7) and the Ride & Drive (March 6-7). Exhibits will be open March 6-8.

Mary Aufdemberg, general manager of product strategy and market development for Daimler Trucks North America, will deliver the Green Truck Summit keynote. The summit provides insights, solutions and resources in support of the work truck industry’s drive toward achieving greater sustainability, productivity and efficiency. John Davis, creator, host and executive producer of MotorWeek, will return as emcee and moderate two new panel discussions, one with fleet leaders at the forefront of advanced vehicle technology adoption and another with top chassis manufacturers.

Sponsored by Allison Transmission, this year’s Ride & Drive is open to all event attendees on a first-come, first-served basis. Attendees will be able to choose from nearly 20 vehicles, including all-electric vans, trucks and chassis, as well as internal combustion vehicles featuring advanced technology to improve fuel utilization and reduce greenhouse gases or particulate matter.

“Most fleet managers don’t have the time and capacity to arrange individual meetings with all the players to test-drive the equipment,” said Chris Lyon, NTEA director of fleet relations. “With Work Truck Week Ride & Drive, we’ve done that legwork for them by gathering subject matter experts and vehicles from participating companies in one place for two days.”

Education is a core component of Work Truck Week, with 2024’s program including a range of in-depth special sessions and shorter breakout sessions focused on ideas and strategies to help attendees improve efficiency, implement best practices and enhance operational growth.

According to Jennifer Mitchell, NTEA’s senior director of content development, “Work Truck Week and Green Truck Summit sessions address challenges attendees are facing right now, like grappling with recruiting and training employees, specifying and upfitting alternative fuel vehicles and maximizing productivity.”

Work Truck Week also serves as the world premiere for some of the biggest stars in the commercial vehicle universe. Many of the biggest product announcements will be made during the more than two dozen press conferences scheduled for March 5 through March 7. An hour before the main exhibit hall opens on March 6 and 7, attendees can also check out what’s new from 25 first-time exhibitors in the New Exhibitor Pavilion.

When: March 5-8, 2024
Where: Indiana Convention Center, Indianapolis
