Q: What changes can I expect from my fleet performance now that fall is approaching?
A: As we have monitored fleets over the past several years, we’ve seen clear seasonal behavior changes. Fall offers prime-time fuel economy and idle reduction opportunity, as the weather becomes neutral and more enjoyable.
Drivers need less heat or air conditioning daily, so they naturally tend to reduce their idle. Habits sometimes prove tough to break, so this season is also a great time to focus coaching on idle behaviors. Talk to your drivers about Idle Shutdown Timer triggers and unnecessary PTO hours showing up on their scorecards.
Once you break those habits, you can maintain your improvements as you move into the colder winter months that are just around the corner.
