Run on Less Regional
Freight efficiency is important regardless of duty cycle. That’s why the North American Council for Freight Efficiency (NACFE) is planning Run on Less Regional in October 2019. Run on Less Regional is a fuel economy demonstration for trucks that typically travel no more than 300 miles from their base.
Run on Less Regional will feature the following 10 fleets operating in a variety of regional haul applications in different geographic and climate areas. This year’s fleets are: C&S Wholesale Grocers, Hirschbach, Hogan Transportation, J.B. Hunt, Meijer, PepsiCo, Ploger Transportation, Schneider, Southeastern Freight Lines, and UPS.
As fleets try to get their drivers home more frequently, this segment of the market is getting increased attention and is growing in importance. Many new solutions are also helping to “organize” goods movement into more predictable and sometimes dedicated routes, likely creating more regional movement of goods.
