Based on its Run on Less Regional fuel-economy event, the North American Council on Freight Efficiency found that regional-haul fleets can improve their fuel efficiency by using data to optimize tractor operations for each route; understanding duty cycles to spec vehicles properly; and coach drivers in efficient driving techniques aimed at those duty cycles. And because of its return-to-base operation, regional haul is ideal for alternative-fuel vehicles, especially battery-electric trucks.
