New Regulations Seek to Reduce Emissions From Large Trucks

  1. 1. NEW REGULATIONS SEEK TO REDUCE EMISSIONS FROM LARGE TRUCKS Robert Rogulic
  2. 2. Introduction  The founder, CEO, and president of Tri-National, Inc., Robert Rogulic is responsible for overseeing the transportation company’s daily operations. Under his leadership, Tri- National, Inc. provides door-to-door service between Canada, Mexico, and the United States. Robert Rogulic maintains an experienced staff and ensures they stay safe and remain in compliance with new trucking regulations. In August 2016, new federal standards for the trucking industry were released that sought to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the United States. The new regulations were announced in a joint release from the Transportation Department and Environmental Protection Agency and mandate that large vehicles – from vans to 18-wheeler trucks – have to reduce their fuel consumption and carbon emissions by up to 25 percent over the next 10 years.
  3. 3. Emissions  Although large vehicles and trucks only make up five percent of traffic on the road, they account for 20 percent of the fuel use and emissions in the transportation sector. These new rules hope to reduce those numbers. While previous regulations added by the Obama administration have been met with some criticism, these new regulations have received support from several major trucking executives and companies. PepsiCo, Inc., Waste Management, and Wabash National Corp. are just some of the corporations that worked with the EPA to create these new rules. Most corporations recognize that there will be some increase in costs during the transition period to lower emission vehicles, but after that, the rules may actually help corporations save money. However, smaller companies are likely to feel the impact more heavily and owner-operators are calling for the rules to be more heavily analyzed.
