Gregory T Swienton, chairman and chief executive officer of Ryder System Inc, will deliver a keynote address at the Alternative Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo. This event is set for May 17 at the Long Beach (CA) Convention Center.

Sponsored by the nation’s leading OEMs, fuel suppliers, and vehicle technology providers, ACT Expo is North America’s largest alternative fuel and clean vehicle technology event dedicated to all alternative fuel types.

In his address, Swienton will discuss Ryder’s leadership and commitment to trucks powered by compressed natural gas (CNG), liquefied natural gas (LNG), and hybrid electric drive systems. He will provide an update on Ryder’s multiple public-private partnerships to deploy hundreds of heavy-duty natural gas powered trucks in its Southern California network as well as in Arizona, Michigan, and elsewhere.

Program topics for the 2012 agenda will include a focus on electrification of the transportation industry, development of national infrastructure systems, a spotlight on investment strategies, and a discussion on how fleets can integrate large-scale deployments of AFVs into fleet operations. The 100,000-square-foot expo hall will feature advanced transportation and alternative fuel vehicles, equipment, and technologies, and will be open to the public May 16–17.
