Culture Of ‘Green’ At U.S. Xpress
  • From Our Earliest Truck Specs, Company Has Valued Conservation
  • Seek ‘Green’ Solutions That Deliver Real Payback
  • Early Adapter Of New Technology & Approaches
  • Wide Range Of Innovations Today
  • Must Balance Which InnovationIs Best Fit For YourOrganization
  • Testing& EvaluationKey Elements
from earth to the moon how far the industry has come
From Earth To The Moon:How Far The Industry Has Come
  • From 2002 To 2007, NOx has been reduced by nearly 500 times.
  • Emissions From 60 Trucks From 2007 Are Equal To Emissions From ONE 1998 truck
  • Challenge Becomes RegainingThe Fuel EfficiencyThat We Lost Since 2002
  • New Frontiers Will BeAerodynamics & Tires

Green Initiatives That Deliver Fuel Savings

  • Wide-Based Tires On NewOver-The-Road Tractors And TrailersPlaced In Service Since 2006
  • Full Aerodynamic Packages For Tractors– Trailer Test Program Underway
  • Low-Rolling ResistanceTires For All Equipment
  • Aerodynamic Mud Flaps
  • Computer-Optimized Fuel Routing,Load Planning And Dispatch System
  • GPS Dual-Mode/On-Board DirectionsWith Satellite Communication System
  • In-Cab Auxiliary Heating SystemNow Standard On Tractors

Driver Involvement:Key To Realizing ‘Green’ Goals
  • Sought To Create “Buy In” From Our Driving Community
  • Goal Of Reducing Idle Time & Fuel Consumption
  • Sample Testing Within Fleet Estimated That We Had Approximately 8 Percent Of Fuel Per Day Lost Due To Idle Time
  • Designed A Driver Rewards Program That Recognizes Top Idle Reduction Performers In The Fleet
