Gregory T. Swienton, chairman & CEO of Ryder System, will deliver the keynote address at the Alternative Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo, May 17, at the Long Beach Convention Center in Long Beach, CA.

ACT Expo, North America’s largest fuel and clean vehicle technology conference, is sponsored by Gladstein, Neandross & Associates (GNA), and provides technical consulting services on clean, alternative fuel and efficient vehicle technologies to fleets. This year’s event will take place from May 15-17 and include educational sessions, training opportunities, technology and vehicle displays, and a ride-and-drive.

“The addition of Greg Swienton to the ACT Expo is an indicator of the strong interest and support

for alternative fuels in the commercial fleet sector,” said Erik Neandross, CEO of GNA. “As the first fleet provider to make heavy-duty natural gas vehicles available for lease and rental on a large scale, Ryder is a leader in the alternative fuels space and has made a significant commitment to provide companies with new technologies to meet their sustainability objectives. The attendees at ACT will benefit greatly from hearing firsthand how Ryder is expanding acceptance of and access to clean vehicle technologies throughout markets in North America.”

Swienton is expected to speak on Ryder’s efforts to promote alternative-fuel vehicles, including compressed natural gas, liquefied natural gas, and hybrid electric drive systems.
