PIB TIP: CUT OUT-OF-ROUTE MILES. If you’re like many owner-operators, with 6 percent to 10 percent of your miles out of route lost to detours, side trips and just human error, you could possible cut them 3 percent. Doing so would save 3 percent on fuel, as well as on other variable costs such as tires and maintenance. Rethinking your route, minimizing side trips and getting better directions will pay off in savings. The Partners in Business program is produced by Overdrive and the consultants at ATBS, the nation’s largest owner-operator business services firm, and is sponsored by Schneider National Inc. and Freightliner Trucks.
