Reduce Idling to Save on Fuel and Cut Emissions
A typical linehaul fleet sees 20% to 30% idle time over the course of a year. A general rule of thumb is that every extra 10% idle time equals another percentage point in fuel economy savings. On top of that, many areas have laws limiting idling in order to cut exhaust emissions. In this panel discussion, learn about some of the options available to reduce idling in your fleet, including auxiliary power units, shore power and more, while still allowing drivers to rest comfortably and enjoy in-cab creature comforts.

Case Study: How the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey Successfully Implemented Biodiesel into its Fleet Operations
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey has gone to great expense to ensure that alternative fuels and their accompanying infrastructure are available at all of its fueling sites. A key component of this effort is the agency’s 10-year-old biodiesel program. As a result of this program, 85% of the Port Authority’s fleet is considered “green.”   This compelling case study will demonstrate how the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, by working closely with its suppliers and client departments, overcame initial user resistance and learned how to successfully address the growing pains typically associated with biodiesel.
Presenter: Jim Reinish, Port Authority of New York and New Jersey
