  • Is the firm actively involved in working with medium/heavy-duty fleets?
  • Does the firm have the knowledge and capacity to provide recommendations on a fleet’s performance and/or efficiency?
  • What tool/methodology will be used to conduct analysis on the data?
  • For more information on what to expect from your assessment, please review the Green Freight Assessment Expected Outcomes.

To be considered for inclusion on our list as an assessor, please send us an email to receive a questionnaire to demonstrate your experience.
