Redefining Goods Movement

Across the United States, more than 70% of all goods used in our daily lives—from food to manufactured products—are transported to our stores and homes by trucks. As the nation’s demand for goods continues to reach record levels, our cities are facing an increase in congestion, noise, and air pollution. The Volvo LIGHTS project in Southern California played an important role in transforming goods movement, as it provided a blueprint to successfully introduce zero-emission battery electric trucks and equipment into the market at scale.  Download the Volvo LIGHTS Lessons Learned Guidebook to learn about the key insights gained during the three-year project.
