Posted by Roger Murray on Nov 19, 2019 10:00:00 AM

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.

While all of these can be beneficial, one thing they don’t address is the actual price of fuel. However, a fuel hedging strategy does.

Fleets Increasingly Relying on Biodiesel to Power Vehicles

Posted by PS Energy Group on Mar 26, 2019 10:30:00 AM

There are just too many political, economic, and environmental impacts, and “unknowns” that are constantly in play. That said, if you take a look at the increasing use of biodiesel by commercial vehicles, as well as the growing interest in reducing carbon and greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation sector, it certainly appears that biodiesel is moving full speed ahead in that direction.
