  21. 21. Factors Effecting Fuel Economy • This wheel shows the number of factors that contribute to overall fuel economy. • The chart is not designed to show the amount or percentage of impact of each factor but rather the sheer number of variables that must be taken into account for a complete analysis.
  22. 22. Driver Characteristics • The driver has control over the following: – Gear selection (manual trans or automated in manual mode) • Option for all engines to have progressive shift enabled in manual mode – Road Speed – Throttle Aggressiveness – Brake use (including the engine brake) – Use of cruise control – Idle Time • The Truck Maintenance Council’s (TMC) RP 1111 document states that the driver can contribute up to a 35% difference in fuel economy.
  23. 23. Leveraging People & Technology for Driver Performance Performance Feedback • Performance feedback for our drivers is provided through our “Driver Excelerator”, a smart, technology based scorecard. – Assigns points based on performance in key areas - fuel, safety and operations. – Displays progress and point totals in all key areas for driver managers to reference – Driver manager’s job is to coach, not correct. It’s built with systems in place to motivate, not just measure. – Each month the scorecard assigns the driver a status as Gold, Silver or Bronze level. Based on points earned, drivers receive a quarterly or per mile bonus.
  24. 24. Leveraging People & Technology for Driver Performance Building a Culture that Encourages Performance Nussbaum is a faith based organization which operates on Biblical principles. • Our people drive our success. If we take care of them, Nussbaum will thrive. The driver scorecard is built on this principal. • Successful driver performance requires: – High standard of Integrity, Ethics and Values – Trust – Without trust, there is no motivation on their part to help the company meet its goals and objectives. – Character - Nussbaum hires for character over experience. • Our culture opens up the door. • Drivers can be coached to achieve a higher level of performance.
  25. 25. Lytx / Drivecam Video Technology J&R Schugel’s Approach to Correcting Driver Behavior • Analyzing driver behaviors – Defining the appropriate responses • Identifying the correct technical response in the correct order
  26. 26. Improper Right Turn
  27. 27. J&R Schugel’s Right Turn Mirror Station • Set up to properly block inside lane • Entering turn in proper gear / speed • Looking through the turn • Keep head on swivel and eyes moving • Frequent mirror checks • Mirror check before point of no return • Not shifting during the turn

  35. 35. A Portfolio of Technologies to Meet a Customer’s Specific Needs… Powertrain Optimization Tailored Solutions • Utilizing tailored integration to extract fuel economy. • Optimizing fuel map efficiency with customized ratios and shift points. • Leveraging transmission overall ratio to enable down speeding without sacrificing performance. UltraShift PLUS • 8 platforms • 47 models The right tool for the job.
