    UPS has implemented a right turn only strategy.Turning left at an intersection often involves idling in the middle of the road before actually turning, so UPS rerouted all of their routes to eliminate left hand turns hoping this would reduce their gas consumption.

    The popular television show, Mythbusters, challenged this theory in their own field experiment, only to “confirm” the myth.

    There are also strategies to route trucks, and send them out with more full loads, rather than sending out multiple trucks or having routes overlap.  In addition, companies like Coca-Cola are including alternative fuel or hybrid trucks along with driver training programs to save on gas and reduce emissions.
