Crum Trucking Deploys Vnomics True Fuel
Truckload carrier addresses driver fuel efficiency with True Fuel
Rochester, New York– July 19, 2017 -- Vnomics Corp., the provider of onboard fuel optimization solutions that combine real-time driver coaching and fuel efficiency insights, today announced that Crum Trucking will be installing its True Fuel stand-alone fuel optimization solution in its entire fleet of 138 tractors.
“We chose the True Fuel solution because we’ve always known that fuel efficiency is dependent on drivers’ actions and True Fuel gives drivers and managers the insights they need to make changes,” said Mike Bruno, logistics operations manager at Crum Trucking. “We realize that, ultimately, achieving maximum fuel efficiency depends on the driver and during our pilot we were able to pinpoint the areas with the greatest opportunities for improvement.”
Crum Trucking, Inc. founded in 1994 and based in Batesville, Indiana, is an asset based dry van truckload carrier. Vnomics True Fuel units will be installed in the company’s Volvo tractors, the majority of which are equipped with Cummins engines.
Vnomics True Fuel™ is a stand-alone OEM-agnostic fuel optimization solution that combines the intelligence of machine learning with real-time driver coaching to improve fuel efficiency and vehicle performance in the areas of speeding, idling and improper engine speed control. The insights provided by Vnomics help commercial fleets and their drivers work to reduce fuel expense.
“Our expectation is that Crum Trucking will be able to quickly and measurably improve fuel efficiency across its fleet by using True Fuel,” said Andrew Markese, vice president of sales and marketing at Vnomics. “Based on our projections, if they eliminate even half the fuel waste identified during the pilot, the systems will pay for themselves in just five months. We are pleased they have chosen Vnomics to help them achieve that savings.”
