The battle to earn the CDL is over, but the fight to crown a fuel efficiency champion is just getting started.
After struggling with shifting, the CDL test is ahead on this episode of the Fuel Efficiency Faceoff.
It’s hard to focus on safety when you’re focused on shifting. Episode two of the Fuel Efficiency Faceoff shows why.
How hard can it be? I quickly find out that fuel efficiency is the last thing on a new driver’s mind.
Navistar recently announced its recognition as a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) High Performer in the SmartWay Program’s Shipper category. According to the press release, the EPA’s SmartWay Program helps companies advance supply chain sustainability by measuring, benchmarking and improving freight transportation efficiency. The EPA’s SmartWay Program provides a comprehensive system for tracking fuel use and freight
There is value that goes beyond decreased tire wear when spec’ing lift axles Lift axles aren’t the first axle option that comes to mind for long-haul, over-the-road applications. But fleet managers would be wise to reconsider their go-to spec when looking to boost fuel efficiency and equipment operation savings. Sure, there’s the obvious benefit of
Let’s talk about the 6×2 elephant in the room and how new equipment technology is addressing it.
Aerodynamics and advanced engineering made it happen.
The common truck tire creation adage used to be: Lower rolling resistance and increased efficiency come at the cost of tire durability. Today, that adage might not hold so true.
The SuperTruck II demonstrates 16 MPG through hybridization—a 170% improvement compared to the baseline model.
Setting sustainability goals can seem like a lot of work, but even small steps toward decarbonization can add up.
Powertrain integration goes beyond how the components connect. Powertrain management software pushes fuel efficiency further.
