The North American Council for Freight Efficiency is now accepting applications for fleets to participate in Run on Less Regional, a fuel efficiency road show focusing on trucks that operate 300 miles from base.
“There are a lot of factors occurring that are contributing to a growth of regional haul,” says Mike Roeth, Executive Director at NACFE. “In Run on Less 2017 we were able to demonstrate the fleets operating in real world conditions could achieve 10.1 MPG on a consistent basis. But long haul is only one part of the truck market and we want to see just how fuel efficient fleets in regional haul can be given the challenges they face.”
The Run will kick off on October 8 from various points across the U.S. and Canada and will conclude with a finale on Sunday, October 27 at the NACV show.
“We are looking for fleets operating a wide variety of regional haul applications and duty cycles but we are also committed to high MPG,” said Dave Schaller, NACFE’s Industry Engagement Manager.
Fleets interested in participating should go to runonlesss.com to fill out an application. Manufacturers are also encouraged to encourage fleets to apply that they think exemplify high MPG in regional haul applications.
Run on Less regional would not be possible without the help of sponsors. To date Shell, PepsiCo and Geotab have signed on as sponsors. Sponsorship opportunities still exist. Anyone interested in being a Run on Less Regional sponsor should contact Mike Roeth at email@example.com.
We will be updating the industry as we confirm drivers and add sponsors. For updates go to runonless.com.
