The Lightweight Materials Technology Council brings together work truck professionals, technical experts and government representatives to compile information about the development and usage of lightweight materials in the manufacture, specification and operation of truck equipment and related accessories for fuel efficiency, vehicle “right sizing,” carbon reduction, operational longevity, recycling, general mass-compounding and increased payload.

The Vehicle Electrification Technology Council (VETC) explores potential efficiency and performance benefits of vehicle electrification, and provides a mechanism for identifying and promoting useful electrification technologies within the work truck market. The VETC also facilitates education, works to remove road blocks and resolves identified issues.
