Truck Fuel Efficiency: 2018 Trends, Drivers, Challenges and Emerging Technologies -


The "Truck
Fuel Efficiency: Trends, Challenges and Emerging Technologies"

report has been added to's

Growing oil demand has led to considerable volatility in fuel prices
since the beginning of the 21st century. Recent rises in crude oil and
automotive fuel prices underline the potential for disrupting operator
business models and growing political risks mean the issue looks as if
it will remain critical in the coming years.

While fuel costs accounted for around 10% of freight costs a decade or
two ago, they have been as high as 35% during recent years, and
operators now regard 30% as a benchmark.

This report outlines the commercial, political and legislative
environment, tracks the key technologies, and reports on the status of
their development. The report pulls together a number of different
perspectives and looks at developments around the entire vehicle to
provide an overview of the overall trends in this very important area.
