The Electric Freight Consortium (EFC) is a forum for collaboration between the Electrification Coalition (EC) and private-sector partners (shippers, carriers, retailers, and EV supply chain companies) that facilitates peer-to-peer collaboration on strategies and actions that will accelerate freight electrification at scale. The EFC serves as an exclusive space for partners while leveraging the EC’s direct experience in policy action and real-world EV deployment.
The EFC brings together leaders in the freight sector to pursue the following goals:
A growing number of freight applications are realizing lower total cost of ownership by using EVs instead of the conventional diesel counterparts. Additional benefits of the electrification of freight operations include reduction in dependency on oil, lower and more predictable fuel costs, mitigation of harmful tailpipe emissions, and improvements in air quality in historically disadvantaged communities.
The EFC will be following the Chatham House Rule in order to increase the openness of discussion. Under Chatham House Rule, all members are free to use information learned from EFC meetings but are not allowed to disclose who made any particular comment. Additional core components of the EFC structure include:
The EFC will have no cost of membership and no membership forms to allow for a simple and straightforward application process for members. Additionally, there is no requirement for senior management.
The Electric Freight Consortium is seeking private sector partners such as shippers, carriers, retailers, and EV and electric vehicle supply equipment manufacturers. See contacts below to schedule a meeting to discuss your organization’s partnership with the EFC.
