Baltimore Freightliner-Western Star’s parent Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) has exceeded even its own expectations this summer by achieving every one of its expansive SuperTruck program goals an entire year in advance. The goals were set back in early 2010 and were expected to take at least five years to meet, but DTNA’s commitment to excellence has gotten them there ahead of schedule.
DTNA partnered with the U.S. Department of Energy when it first implemented the SuperTruck program. The focuses of the program were centered on performance and eco-friendly initiatives, including improving the efficiency of DTNA truck designs, cutting back on fuel consumption and use, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Programs focused on creating fuel-efficient and sustainable truck designs are of paramount importance in the industry; cutting back on fuel usage means that trucking becomes more affordable, reliable, and practical for the modern world. Increasingly, we are seeing hybrid and electric engine options being investigated, and “going green” in the trucking industry seems like a trend that is here to stay.
Of course, having met the SuperTruck goals a year in advance doesn’t mean that DTNA is going to stop with their efforts. In fact, they are using the positive results of the initial SuperTruck goals to inspire new plans and innovations that will keep DTNA at the top of the trucking industry. Baltimore Freightliner-Western Star is proud to be a subsidiary of Daimler Trucks North America and to be participating with them in this exciting move towards the future of trucking.
