Commercial transport is critical for the global economy, keeping goods and trade flowing. In the U.S. alone, trucks haul 70% of all freight, but this sector accounts for over 25% of all fuel consumed globally. As you may know, in tandem with fuel use, managing CO2 is a global industry and societal concern. To avoid the worst effects of climate change, Shell is dedicated to reaching net-zero emissions by 2050.

Taking steps to reduce fuel consumption of trucks by improving fuel economy is not only good for the bottom line, but also a contributor to tackling emissions.

DID YOU KNOW? A fuel saving of 1% by U.S. highway trucks would save 1 million diesel gallons per day. That’s the equivalent to a daily fuel saving of $2,700,000.

Shell is committed to helping fleets meet these challenges. We are regularly working with businesses of all sizes to help the improve fuel economy, vehicle reliability and achieve lower maintenance. In the last five years, we have worked with fleets to help them save $23 million. Through specialist technical services and expertise, Shell Lubricants enables fleets to realize the full value of a high-performing lubricants and grease portfolio.
