About Run on Less

A joint effort between the North American Council for Freight Efficiency (NACFE) and Rocky Mountain Institute, Run on Less is a best-of-the-best, cross-country roadshow that showcases advancements in freight efficiency. The goal of the Run is to highlight the best possible current use of the efficiency technologies, operational practices, and driver capabilities to show what the most innovative fleets in the real world can accomplish in terms of fuel economy and freight efficiency.

Run on Less showcases how efficiency technologies improve the bottom line for fleets and benefit the environment by reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Each Run highlights a specific trucking segment and details how these drivers and fleets deliver high efficiency.

In September 2017, NACFE worked with seven fleets and numerous supporting suppliers on the original Run on Less to determine a benchmark for best-in-class fuel economy. NACFE is currently planning Run on Less Regional for October 2019, a fuel economy demonstration for trucks that typically travel no more than 300 miles from their base.

Run on Less is made possible thanks to the support of fleets volunteering to take part in the demonstration and sponsors helping to underwrite the costs associated with it.
