Run on Less Regional
In October 2019, NACFE worked with 10 fleets and numerous supporting suppliers to stage a demonstration of great drivers with specified production level tractors and trailers. Throughout the Run, NACFE monitored these vehicles via a dedicated telematics link and a datalogger to determine a benchmark for best-in-class fuel economy in regional haul applications. The results surprised many in the industry and proved that there are improvements that most all fleets can implement if they adopt the right technologies.
The event had two other goals: to better define the growing segment of regional haul and to look into the future to see how new technologies such as electrification, hydrogen and connectivity might shape trucking’s future.

“Regional haul can no longer be treated as a complex minority part of goods movement. We now have a strong definition of this important market segment and understand its impact on two of trucking’s huge challenges – attracting drivers and adoption of battery electric trucks.”MIKE ROETH, NACFE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
