Depressed fuel prices have been one of the bright spots for fleet operations in 2015. But most industry observers don’t expect diesel prices to remain where they are indefinitely. Which is why the North American Council for Freight Efficiency (NACFE) has been hard at work studying alternative fuels and strategies for economic alternatives, according to an article in the November/December Food Logistics Magazine.
