The 21st Century Truck PartnershipSM (21CTP, or the Partnership) is a longstanding government/industry research collaboration with industrial partners across the commercial truck value chain and government partners with civilian and military missions. The Partnership aims to foster technological innovation in improving the energy efficiency and reducing the costs of the nation’s economically vital truck freight transportation system through this strategic public-private partnership. Partners are involved as a result of their interests in the overall aims of 21CTP as described above.

This blueprint document is meant as a summary of the Partnership’s updated collaborative research efforts to make transportation energy more affordable and secure. The Partnership is developing all-new roadmap documents with additional details to provide the technical foundation for research priorities, and the reader is encouraged to review these resources for more information.
