  1. 1. About the ATG The Aluminum Association’s Aluminum Transportation Group (ATG) communicates the benefits of aluminum in transportation applications to help accelerate its penetration through research programs and related outreach activities. Our mission is to serve member companies and act as a central resource for vehicle manufacturers, policy- makers, the news media and the public on transportation aluminum issues. The Aluminum Advantage As the issues of vehicle safety and fuel economy become more important to the au- tomotive industry and their customers, auto aluminum will continue to play a vital role in the design and engineering of cars and light trucks. The ATG continues to promote research and programs that will highlight the positive automotive safety, enhanced ve- hicle performance, environmentally-friendly benefits and increasing growth of automo- tive aluminum. Stakeholders in the commercial vehicle industry also are facing several challenges today from rising energy costs, a weak economy and the growing concern over greenhouse gas emissions. As federal mandates continue to add weight to heavy-duty vehicles, there has never been a better time for manufacturers, fleet and owner-op- erators, shippers and legislators to begin exploring the options that alternative mate- rial choices offer. The ATG has expanded its mission to include commercial vehicles to help communicate the benefits lightweighting with aluminum offers the industry, including the ability to increase payload capacity; lower maintenance costs; reduce fuel consumption; reduce greenhouse gas emissions; improve durability and corrosion resistance; and produce a higher resale value.
