SmartWay Fleet Average Annual Idle Hours per Truck, by Category
Posted August 19, 2013
This chart, based on 2012 data, portrays the average idle hours reported by SmartWay Truck Carriers for each truck category during the 2012 data year. The average was computed by using the idle hours reported for each fleet, and averaging those numbers within each truck category. This average is not weighted by the number of trucks per fleet.
Trucks are grouped into categories that reflect typical types of operation, load, duty cycles, etc. within each group, so that comparisons can be more properly made within and between these categories.
