Live Better: Bruce Aschwege
There are more than 7,000 drivers in Walmart's fleet. Bruce is one of them. This is his story.
Thanks to drivers like Bruce, the fleet continues to minimize environmental impact by delivering more and driving less every day.
On the road to doubling fleet efficiency
Walmart U.S. Logistics is an industry leader in the development and testing of advanced fleet technology as we work toward our goal of doubling our efficiency by 2015. We’re already 69% more efficient, compared to our 2005 baseline.
Since 2007, the Walmart fleet has delivered 361 million more cases while driving 287 million fewer miles.
Leading the industry in the development of fleet technology
In partnership with truck and component manufacturers, we have built a number of prototype tractors, including hybrid assist, wheel-end hybrid assist, full propulsion hybrid, and natural gas, with the goal of learning from testing in a real-life environment to improve the technology.
Like many emerging technologies, these trucks may never enter operation or may not remain in operation long as they go through multiple iterations before being cleared for commercialization. We are already working on next generations.
