MVT Solutions now offering no-cost fuel efficiency reports

Aug. 21, 2019
New subscription service automatically provides detailed test data for the company’s Certified Products

MVT Solutions (MVTS), a subsidiary of Mesilla Valley Transportation that provides fuel economy testing for the trucking industry, recently made the test reports for its Certified Products available on a no-cost subscription basis. 

“Receiving MVTS Certification is a mark of fuel efficiency excellence for a product and we feel strongly that the industry should have that information and the supporting test data in a timely manner and at no cost,” said Daryl Bear, lead engineer and COO at MVTS. “In addition, the suppliers of the certified products have confidence that their results are being delivered by a trusted source to companies that are interested in their technologies.”

While MVTS’s Certified Products test reports with detailed data on the latest fuel efficiency solutions for transportation companies are posted on the company’s website, the new subscription service ensures results are delivered automatically as soon as they are available, giving fleets the ability to have the most up-to-date information.

Fleets currently relying on MVTS results include Hirschbach Motor Lines, Penske Truck Leasing, Nussbaum Transportation, Mesilla Valley Transportation, CR England and Charger Logistics. 

“We see a lot of products that claim fuel efficiency savings,” said Brad Pinchuk, CEO and president of Hirschbach, a 48-state truckload carrier with 2,000 tractors and 3,500 trailers. “With MVT Solutions we have reports and data that give us the confidence that we’re making better-informed decisions.

“The information that MVT Solutions provides also lets us have more effective conversations with vendors.”

Certified fuel economy testing by MVTS was developed from race car engineering and advanced vehicle test methods using sensors and recording systems that collect data on fuel consumption, aerodynamics, rolling resistance, driver behavior and other variables that affect fuel consumption, the company said. The data is analyzed using proprietary methods. 

To subscribe, visit the MVT Solutions subscription page or follow the company on LinkedIn.

MVT Solutions says its test reports for custom and developmental testing done for fleets or suppliers are released only with the permission of the company and are not part of the subscription service.
