Ten drivers have been selected to participate in Run on Less Regional, a fuel efficiency roadshow produced by title sponsor Shell, the North American Council for Freight Efficiency (NACFE), and Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI).

The drivers—working for C&S Wholesale Grocers, Hirschbach, Hogan Transportation, J.B. Hunt, Meijer, PepsiCo, Ploger Transportation, Schneider, Southeastern Freight Lines, and UPS—will drive trucks equipped with a variety of technologies that improve fuel efficiency.

Drivers and equipment include:

  • Louis Scaruffi – 42 years driving; C&S Wholesale Grocers; 2019 Volvo VNR day cab with Volvo D13 engine
  • Mark Casey – 1 year driving; Hirschbach; 2019 Freightliner Cascadia sleeper with Detroit DD15 engine
  • Glen Williams – 30 years driving; Hogan Transportation; 2020 International LT day cab with Cummins X15 engine
  • Dustin Whitener – 11 years driving; J.B. Hunt; 2019 International LT sleeper with Cummins X15 engine

The trucks will be equipped with a variety of different technologies and, as each fleet selects its own combination of technologies to achieve its fuel efficiency goals, no two trucks will be the same.

During three weeks in October, the drivers will haul freight in different locations across the U.S.. The run kicks off Oct. 7 and culminates in Atlanta during the North American Commercial Vehicle show Oct. 28–31.

During the Run, NACFE will be hosting three technology days during which experts will share thought leadership on the following subjects: hydrogen, Oct. 8; connectivity, Oct. 15; and commercial battery electric vehicles, Oct. 23.
