A joint effort between the North American Council for Freight Efficiency (NACFE) and Rocky Mountain Institute, Run on Less is a best-of-the-best, cross-country roadshow that showcases advancements in freight efficiency. The goal of the Run is to highlight the best possible current use of the efficiency technologies, operational practices, and driver capabilities to show what the most innovative fleets can accomplish in the real world in terms of fuel economy and freight efficiency. Run on Less showcases how efficiency technologies improve the bottom line for fleets and benefit the environment by reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Run on Less 2017 highlighted how drivers and fleets deliver high efficiency in the movement of goods in the long-haul segment of the trucking industry, while Run on Less Regional focused on regional haul applications.
During the Run, fuel economy is measured using three main metrics: gallons, dollars and CO2 saved. MPG and freight ton efficiency are only shown in daily and accumulated averages for all trucks. A goal of Run on Less is to highlight the effectiveness of the many different technologies, not to identify any specific ‘winning” combination.
To portray the conditions drivers and their equipment are facing, in addition to MPG some of the factors that are likely to affect fuel economy including the payload hauled, total elevation change, average vehicle speed, and other items are reported on.
