NACFE Details Efficiency Savings

May 15, 2015 by ShowTimes in ACT Expo 2015 with 0 Comments

NACFEFourteen fleets saved $477 million – about $9,000 per year per truck – and cut carbon emissions by 19% in 2014 by adopting efficiency technologies, according to the North American Council on Freight Efficiency’s fourth Annual Fleet Fuel Study, released here yesterday.

ROI for these 14 early adopters came in at 2.5 years, NACFE said, fueled by last year’s high diesel prices.

“These technologies are working for these fleets. They’re saving fuel, they’re continuing to buy technologies over time,” NACFE executive director Mike Roeth said.

The nonprofit NACFE’s study calculated data provided by the 14 participating fleets against a business-as-usual scenario, meaning fleets that don’t adopt efficiency technologies.

NACFE (Booth 1450) surveyed the fleets, both large and small, to find out what percentage of their new purchases in any given year used any of 68 potential efficiency technologies. The results indicate an increased adoption rate of 42% in 2014 from a baseline of 18% in 2003.

As a result, the 14 fleets have achieved 7.0 mpg on average.

“These fleets offer a roadmap to other fleets, given their experience,” Roeth says.
