Trucking Efficiency, the joint effort between the North American Council for Freight Efficiency (NACFE) and Carbon War Room, has released its newest Confidence Report on idle reduction systems.
According to the group, the report is a comprehensive account on the solutions available to lower the cost of providing a comfortable sleeper environment for truckers. The study team conducted hundreds of interviews with end users, manufacturers, truck builders and others. Trucking Efficiency says 19 technologies are detailed, five common fleet strategies shared and nearly 40 suppliers specification sheets are included in an appendix.
