American Trucking Associations said it will host a first-ever national summit on the growing use of natural gas as a fuel for moving freight across the country.

ATA said the event will be held Nov. 28-30 just outside Washington, D.C., at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Arlington, Va.

Bill Graves, ATA president, called natural gas “a subject of critical importance to trucking. . . . While there has been a great deal of good work done on the subject of natural gas and trucking, I feel that no one has put the whole picture — from suppliers and manufacturers to distributors and users — together, and we intend to do that.”

Federation officials said the agenda is still being finalized but would be released soon. The summit will kick off with an opening reception on Wednesday, Nov. 28, followed by a full day of panels and speakers. On Nov. 30, panels will be held until mid-afternoon, ATA said.
