My drivers have done a nice job of decreasing their idle times. What is the next step they can take in improving these idle times?


When making 10-25 stops a day, minor behavior improvements can drastically improve your idle times. Below is a comparative example of two drivers’ post-delivery habits; you should note that drivers with efficient idle habits have lower idle times, resulting in higher fuel economy.​​​​
