Commercial Transport Sector Launches ‘The Transport Project’

Washington, DC – A collective of close to 200 organizations and companies involved in the efficient movement of goods, services, and people today launched The Transport Project (TTP), a national 501(c)(6) advocacy organization dedicated to ensuring North America’s fleets run safely, reliably, and effectively on clean, renewable fuels.

The Transport Project’s established purpose and mission is to act as the national voice advancing the growth and deployment of practical, clean, gaseous fuels for transportation by:

  • Advocating for fair and effective legislation and regulation;
  • Informing and educating about the availability, use, and benefits of clean gaseous fuels and vehicles;
  • Continually improving safety through sensible codes, standards, and practices; and
  • Collaborating with like-minded partners across the transportation sector.

This broad coalition includes industry drivers from every corner of the commercial transportation field – fleets and end users, vehicle dealers, servicers and suppliers, fuelers and fuel producers, and OEMs and engine manufacturers.

“Our name accurately suggests that our work has a greater purpose and objective than simply advancing individual business interests,” said TTP Chair Marty Tufte. “Our members are expert professionals in the freight movement and commercial transportation sector working to supply American businesses, move American commuters, and deliver goods and services for American families by deploying some of the most cost effective, sustainable technologies commercially scalable today.”

Founding TTP members include fleets like Amazon, UPS, and WM; global energy companies including Chevron and Shell; fuel providers and marketers like Clean Energy Fuels, OPAL Fuels, Trillium Energy Solutions, a Love’s Company, and U.S. Energy; and major original equipment and engine manufacturers and suppliers including ANGI Energy Systems, A Vontier Company, Chart Industries, Cummins Inc., Cummins Clean Fuel Technologies, Hexagon Agility, Landi Renzo, Westport Fuel Systems, and Wing Fuel Systems.

“Solving the challenge of effectively decarbonizing North America’s public and private commercial fleet is an ongoing project… it’s a ‘Transport Project’ that will take time to do correctly and inclusively,” added TTP President Daniel Gage. “We want fleets of every size and application in every corner of America to be able to participate. To do so, they must be afforded flexibility and the ability to choose from multiple cleaner vehicle options that meet their needs and budget, including renewable natural gas (RNG).”

Transitioning to RNG-fueled vehicles can save money and reduce emissions, and deploys new, affordable, cleaner, and compliant technology without delay and without compromising business operations. More and more commercial fleets are discovering how allocating RNG as transportation fuel can help achieve more sustainable results immediately. Data from the California Air Resources Board shows the average carbon intensity of the bio-CNG mix allocated to vehicles in California in Q3 2023 dropped to -132 gCO2e/MJ, the lowest carbon intensity of any transportation fuel or technology in the state.1 Today, over 70 percent of all natural gas motor fuel dispensed in the United States is derived from renewable sources.

The Transport Project will advocate for an all-of-the-above approach to help in decarbonization efforts, reduce emissions, advance vehicle choice, and work to affect climate-positive policies.


The Transport Project is a national coalition of roughly 200 fleets, vehicle and engine manufacturers and dealers, servicers and suppliers, and fuel producers and providers dedicated to the decarbonization of North America’s transportation sector. Through the increased use of gaseous motor fuels including renewable natural gas and hydrogen, the United States and Canada can help achieve ambitious climate goals and greatly improve air quality safely, reliably, and effectively without delay and without compromising existing commercial business operations.
