In the transportation industry, fuel economy is often the top focus. This is especially true for trucking companies that want to minimize costs. And, with good reason. According to the American Trucking Associations (ATA), fuel is typically the second-highest cost for trucking companies, slightly behind driver pay.
With diesel prices rising and an overwhelming increase in the demand for trucking, fleets must find ways to reduce expenses in other areas besides fuel spend if they want to remain competitive. In doing so, fleets can cut costs from their operating budget and boost their bottom line.
