Diesel prices continue to shatter all-time highs, challenging fleet managers and owner/operators to seriously consider reactive measures.
Aerodynamic products improve fuel economy... that is not a new concept at all. However, with diesel nearing $6 per gallon, the real need to stretch your diesel dollars further down the road is now paramount.
According to the Energy Information Administration, the U.S. average cost of trucking's primary fuel rose to $5.61 per gallon, up $2.36 since last year. In parts of the country, diesel prices climbed over $6 a gallon, most notably in California ($6.47) and New England ($6.43).
Is your bottom line feeling the diesel dilemma?
A new TruckStop.com survey reports that 51% of carriers - defined by TruckStop.com as small fleets and owner-operators - are considering leaving the industry in the next six to 12 months.
"The freight transportation industry is cyclical, which means innovating ahead of the impending ups and downs is paramount to ensuring our customers have the tools they need to navigate the industry's cycles and ensure steady cash flow," said Kendra Tucker, CEO of TruckStop.com.
