Trade activity continues to rise as more goods travel from and through Mexico to the US. Common goods include computers, electronics, machinery, plastics, oils and a whole lot more.

SWAN News ACT 2024 Expo Offers Fleet Exemptions & Incentives

Amy returned from Las Vegas with a wealth of information for commercial fleets, particularly those looking to get ahead of clean energy deadlines.

With the CAAP Clean Air Program, the government is providing incentives to EV truck companies through exemptions from the Clean Truck Fund (CTF) Rate, which is set at $10 per twenty-foot equivalent unit (TEU). Zero-emissions trucks are exempt from this fee, offering substantial cost savings for companies transitioning to EVs.

To address insurance costs associated with EV trucks, insurance companies are offering a shared cost incentive program allowing your trucking company to insure a portion of each truck's value while self-insuring the remaining portion. By doing so, your company can reduce its insurance premiums and handle small claims internally. Both parties benefit from a balanced solution that makes insuring high-value EV trucks more affordable and manageable.

To explore these opportunities and more, email Amy or click below to schedule a call and see how you can best leverage and update your fleet.
