Trucking is the cornerstone of freight activity around the world. In markets like thevUnited States, trucks account for about 72% of total tons transported (Bureau of Transportation Statistics, 2018). Trucking is also responsible for a large share of the total carbon dioxide (CO2) and other harmful air pollutant emissions from on-road transportation, even though there are significantly fewer trucks than passenger vehicles (Kodjak, 2015). Globally, diesel vehicles account for more than 40% of on-road energy consumption, and 90% of it is from heavy-duty trucks (International
Energy Agency, 2017a, 2017b).
