Media & Press Coverage

Faster Freight - Cleaner Air (FFCA) is recognized as the nation's leading conference series on goods movement and air quality. Over the many years that the conference has been held, it has garnered significant attention and coverage in both mainstream and trade-industry press and media outlets. The following is a sampling of some of this coverage.

"Alternative fuels like natural gas play a role, but so do new attitudes and operating policies. Both lofty goals and devilish details were discussed at the Faster Freight Cleaner Air California conference in Long Beach last month, where it was clear that new attitudes and shipping operational changes go hand in hand with alternative fuels and hybrid drive technologies when it comes to cleaning the air."
