About the book

The emergence of electric trucks will present new challenges, from changes to the facility and investment in tooling and training, to embracing new business models to offset the reduction in maintenance required. The Road to Zero Emissions examines the growing impact of technology, artificial intelligence systems and applications which will drive massive change in the industry.

The Internet of Things (IoT) presents a significant challenge to Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), Tier Suppliers and Transport & Logistics providers. Companies will need to master the demands of improved productivity and customer expectations driven by vast amounts of intelligence generated by integrated systems embedded in today's products. The Road to Zero Emissions presents case studies of innovative new entrants into the future automotive space to provide examples to readers of how to adapt and capitalize upon the opportunities available alongside these challenges. The authors also present future plans and models from major manufacturing companies to guide readers in how to develop a forward-thinking zero emission strategy.
