This report contains the results into the adoption of various products and practices for improving freight efficiency among 19 major North American fleets. The scope of this work encompassed Class 8 tractors (daycabs and sleepers) and trailers in regional and long-haul applications. Fleets providing data for this 2017 study include Bison Transport, Cardinal Logistics, CFI, CR England, Challenger Motor Freight, Crete, Frito-Lay, Maverick, Mesilla Valley Transportation, NFI Industries, Nussbaum, Paper Transport, Prime, Ryder System Inc., Schneider, United Parcel Service, US Xpress and Werner. One more fleet has supplied data in the past, but has not for the past few years. The primary goal was to study the fleets’ levels of adoption of 85 technologies and practices, and the results those drove in each organization. All 85 technologies, up from 69 in last year’s study, are currently available and not prototypes, validation test units, or pre-production units. This study focuses on technologies purchased and implemented onto a fleet’s trucks and trailers.
