Many experts believe that fuel efficiency benchmarking can help the inter-city trucking industry further reduce its energy consumption and curb GHG emissions.

Anational survey on fuel economy, with the support of all the major trucking associations in Canada, L-P Tardif & Associates Inc. conducted the survey in March 2000.
