LANGLEY, B.C. — The B.C. Trucking Association (BCTA) is hosting its twelfth biennial Truxpo this Friday, Oct. 3 and Saturday, Oct. 4.
Truxpo 2008 highlights the “Greening of the Motor Carrier Industry,” with participating exhibitors to showcase the latest in equipment and services that make a real difference in reducing both emissions and fuel usage.
Over 140 exhibitors from across North America have registered with Truxpo, organizers say, including those that offer environmental technologies (such as hybrid and natural gas trucks), auxiliary power units and other anti-idling systems, diesel particulate filters, tracking systems, wide-base tires, aerodynamic trailer fairings, energy-efficient refrigeration and air compression systems, and the latest in synthetic lubricants.
In addition to products and services, organizations supporting energy-efficient practices and initiatives will be on-hand with information on their programs, including the Fraser Basin Council’s Green Fleets BC and Natural Resources Canada’s Fleetsmart.
Truxpo 2008 is open to the public on Friday, Oct. 3 from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturday, Oct. 4 from 10 a.m. to 4 pm. at Abbotsford’s Tradex Centre, located at 1190 Cornell Street. Admission is $5 per person or $10 per family at the door.
