Heavy-duty vehicles are difficult to decarbonize, and the heaviest of heavy trucks – weighing between almost 53,000 and 63,500 kg – are especially challenging due to their high energy demands, small business ownership, and typically small profit margins. This report assesses the viability of emerging technology and fuel options, as well as the programs and regulations that support the decarbonization of the heaviest trucks in British Columbia and the transportation sector more broadly.

Costs, benefits and uptake of trailer fuel-saving devices An examination of Canada’s on-road freight sector

Publication
March 11, 2021 - By Maddy Ewing

To improve fuel efficiency and reduce transportation emissions, trucking fleets across Canada are outfitting their trailers with fuel-saving devices, such as aerodynamic add-ons or low rolling resistance tires. But how widely are fuel-saving devices adopted in the Canadian trucking industry? Consultation with the trucking sector revealed that adoption of most devices is low and that further supports are required.
