C R England driver’s idling

in Q3 fuel-saving promo
Nov 5, 2012 10:20 AM
C R England has awarded a Harley-Davidson Sportster Seventy-Two motorcycle to Richard Robinson for showing improvement in miles per gallon average and average idle percentage for third quarter 2012.
Robinson is a company driver in the Regional Division and has been driving with the Salt Lake City UT-based global transportation provider since July 2007. During the third quarter, he achieved an average of 7.95 mpg and an idle of 0.9%. Robinson said his fuel success comes from never idling: “If the wheels aren’t rolling, the engine is off.” he said.
The third quarter promotion, which ran from July 1 to September 30, 2012, required drivers to have met this criteria: availability at 75% or higher, an average mpg of 7.4, an idle of less than 15%, and no chargeable late loads. Competition included drivers with a start date no later than July 1, 2012.
C R England’s partners in the promotion are Golden Spike Harley-Davidson, Warner Truck Center, Horizon Truck and Leasing, Loves Travel Stops, IdleAir, and Pilot/Flying J.
Founded in 1920, C R England is one of North America’s largest transportation companies and the world’s largest temperature-controlled carrier. It services include national, Mexico, and regional truckload service in addition to dedicated and intermodal services.
