The North American Council for Freight Efficiency (NACFE) has published three free "Freight Efficiency Executive Reports" on its Web site at www.nacfe.org. The reports are part of the organization's effort to help the trucking industry accelerate the rate of adoption of freight-efficient products, technologies, and practices.
"With the abundance of new products and information in today's marketplace, it is difficult for the trucking industry to analyze every possible efficiency solution or technology," said Michael Roeth, executive director of NACFE. "The trucking industry needs real-world, trustworthy information and solutions. Our hope is that these factual reports will help decision makers implement technologies and procedures that help not only their operation, but also the industry at large."
The executive reports offer a balanced investigation of the featured topic, providing both the improved performance and economic considerations, while also being sure to identify any potential consequences of product usage. The first three reports explore the subjects of 6-by-2 tractors, wide-base single tires, and speed limits on commercial trucks.
Additional reports will be published in the future, and the industry is invited to comment on the various reports or suggest further areas of investigation for future reports.
