Our Technology Guide


In order to facilitate the wider industry’s trust in and adoption of technologies, NACFE and CWR formed Trucking Efficiency and began a series of reports, called “Confidence Reports,” which will take an in-depth look at technologies one-by-one. Confidence Reports provide a concise introduction to a promising category of fuel efficiency technologies, covering key details of their applications, benefits, and variables. The reports are produced via a data mining process that both combs public information and collects otherwise-private information (which is shared with Trucking Efficiency for the purpose of the reports), in order to centralize an unparalleled range of testing data and case studies on a given technology set. These reports are the kingpin of the Technology Guide at truckingefficiency.org.

We now know the proposed levels of efficiency in the second round of US greenhouse gas emissions standards released on Friday, June 19th. EPA and NHSTA state a 24% fuel economy improvement by 2027 for tractor trailers, using technologies that they predict will have a two year payback. Trucking Efficiency will help the industry meet these goals with unbiased information and comprehensive analyses for total cost of ownership, as technologies emerge to meet these standards. For information on the new regulations, see here, from the EPA.


NACFE is proud to announce the team who will deliver a Trucking Efficiency Confidence Report on the Light-weighting of HD tractors and trailers for freight efficiency.  Andrew Halonen of Mayflower Consulting, Rob Swim, retired from Navistar along with support from the NACFE and Carbon War Room teams will complete this work for publishing at the end of August, 2015. Andrew and Rob’s bios can be found  here  and a description of the project and call to action for support, here.
