Esso cardlocks business is proud to be a sponsor of the Cooperative Truck Platooning System trial

Esso Commercial Cardlocks™ is pleased to be involved in the Alberta Motor Transport Association’s Cooperative Truck Platooning System (CTPS) trial since it connects with three key priorities at Imperial Oil: safety, innovation and environmental sustainability.

Safety: Everything we do at Imperial is based on our core value of ensuring that Nobody Gets Hurt. The trial’s demonstration of platooning technology and its potential safety improvements for drivers and the motoring public is aligned with our company’s commitment to helping protect the well-being of Canadians from every walk of life.

Innovation: We are interested in the trial’s application of new technologies to the trucking industry – an important sector of the Canadian economy that we help fuel through our coast-to-coast network of over 160 Esso cardlock locations. CTPS’s specific focus on increasing trucking fuel efficiency aligns with our own efforts to improve fuel economy through the application of innovative technologies, such as Synergy Diesel Efficient™ fuel.
