Saving Money with Idle Management Technology

Tuesday, March 3, 2:30PM–3:15PM

Engine idling, by definition, represents the ultimate non-productive use of transportation fuel. In some vocational applications, documented idle time can be more than 50% of the total vehicle operation hours. In many of these situations, various technologies, such as active engine shut-down systems, telematics and driver behavior modification programs have resulted in overall fuel savings of up to 20%. During this session, vocational fleet managers who have successfully implemented idling reduction programs will discuss how they deployed their programs and handled the issues encountered in the process. 

Presented by: Sam Lamerato, CPF, Superintendent of Fleet, City of Troy (Troy, MI); and Brian Peltier, Senior Fleet Buyer, Schwan’s Home Service, Inc. (Marshall, MN)
