By Wally Stegall

The transportation and construction industries have long been plagued by energy inefficiency. In fact, medium- and heavy-duty trucks produce 23 percent of all transportation emissions in the United States even though they only make up 5 percent of all vehicles on the road. While energy efficiency often takes a backseat to more pressing issues, fleet managers who prioritize it stand to reapmore than a few rewards. In addition to saving both time and money, careful and consistent monitoring of fleet utilization can pave the way for environmental policy compliance.
