Fleet Forward 2020 program

The Canadian transportation industry is tasked with moving people and goods through some of the most extreme and varied conditions in the world while remaining cost effective, safe, efficient and environmentally conscious. The Fleet Forward 2020 (FF2020) program leverages world-class engineering and scientific expertise along with unique facilities to develop and commercialize innovative technologies that will improve the operational efficiency of Canadian ground vehicle fleets.

The FF2020 program aims to improve the operational efficiency of targeted Canadian truck transportation, emergency services, urban transit, military and mining ground vehicle fleets. It will further deliver societal benefits tied to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions generated annually by the road transportation sector.
