Posted on 15. Jun, 2018 by in Press Releases

ACT Research’s 59th commercial vehicle seminar, scheduled from August 20 to 22, 2018 in Columbus, Indiana, will feature a variety of speakers from different commercial vehicle perspectives, all discussing how emission regulations and constantly changing technology is impacting their business and the industry at large.


“Seminar 59 is on target to be our best yet, with approximately 20 speakers, four panels, and two breakout sessions scheduled so far. Our economic panel will discuss the impacts of the US and global economies on the transportation industry, while our dealer panelists will address how dealers are keeping up with the rapidly changing world of technology, from service to communications to products, diesel to electric to connectivity,” said Ken Vieth, ACT’s Sr. Partner and General Manager. He continued, “The other two panels will consider the role of electrification, alternative fuels, and zero emissions in today’s commercial vehicle world, as well as how industry leaders see each impacting the industry’s future.”


Vieth noted, “Our two breakout sessions will give attendees the option to learn more about the US trailer market or the North American medium duty vehicle market, and of course, we’ll also have featured speakers discussing the current and forecasted state of the heavy duty market, freight, the used truck market, and rail’s perspective on transportation.”
