A decade ago, old-school drivers and fleet managers snickered at concepts such as aerodynamic tractors, trailer boattales, wide-based single tires, and automated manual transmissions. Fuel efficiency tools such as telematics-based driver coaching, 6x2 drivelines, predictive cruise control, economy coast modes, and downsped powertrains were virtually unknown at the time. Today, all those tools are readily available for fleets focused on fuel economy. And even better: there’s help available today. Lots of it.
During this moderated panel, NACFE Executive Director Mike Roeth sits down with Ploger Transportation and Albert Transport to discuss how they have improved their fuel economy to push beyond 10 MPG.
- How the landscape of fuel economy has changed over the last decade
- The impact of new technology on fuel economy
- The substantial effect drivers have on fuel efficiency
