Driving Your Fleet Towards Idle Reduction

Drivewyze Webinar

Program Airs: September 8, 2022, 2 p.m. ET. Idle time, whether it’s time spent waiting to load or unload a shipment or in a scale house line up, has significant impacts on your fleet operations. It increases the carbon emissions produced by your fleet, quietly consumes your fuel and personnel budgets, reduces operational efficiencies, and creates bottlenecks along your drivers’ routes. According to SmartWay, a partner of the US EPA, if each driver in a 25-truck fleet idled for only two hours, that fleet would burn 40 gallons of diesel each day, at a cost of over $46,000/year.
