We had a great time at the Advance Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo observing the latest and greatest in clean transit innovation. Our projects with Kenworth and Goodwill showcased our progress with these two partnerships at the event. Both projects received a lot of attention from Expo attendees with positive feedback throughout.
Goodwill in San Francisco is moving towards a zero emissions future through their delivery trucks. Engineering Consultant Joel Donham and others at CTE will be providing engineering and planning support to roll out Goodwill’s 10 delivery trucks and 1 Class 8 roll-off truck. Build Your Dreams (BYD) will be providing the electric trucks for the program and unveiled their first model debuted at the expo. Support for this project is provided by the California Climate Investments Program.

Our project with Kenworth was also showcased at ACT. The fuel cell drayage truck is one of the many projects that furthers the development of fuel cell technology for heavy-duty trucking nationwide. Senior Engineering Consultant and Director of Technology Development Jason Hanlin has been working closely with Kenworth, BAE Systems, and Ballard Power Systems to create this industry-leading technology. Once complete, the truck’s main responsibility will be in goods movement between the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach and inland freight terminals. The ZECT project is funded in part by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) and the South Coast Air Quality Management District.
