Q:

What changes can I expect from my fleet performance now that Fall is approaching?

A:

After monitoring fleets over the past several years, we have seen clear seasonal driver behavior changes. With Summer weather cooling down, idle times have decreased, while fuel economy has increased. Fall is the perfect time to drive behavior changes.

Driver’s experience less needs for heating and air conditioning systems. As such, they naturally tend to reduce their idle, although habits are tough to break. This season is a great time to focus on coaching idle behaviors. Talk to your drivers about Idle Shutdown Timer triggers and unnecessary PTO hours appearing on their scorecards.

When you motivate your driver to break those habits, you will continue to see improvements throughout your fleet, as you move into the colder, winter months just around the corner.
