ABSTRACT
The article discusses the implications to the trucking industry of the U.S. federal government's proposed rules which aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The rules would force fleet operators, heavy equipment manufacturers and independent trucking companies to reduce their carbon footprints by making their truck engines to efficiently burn diesel fuel. These segments of the trucking industry will have to spend billions of money to comply with the rules.
