Latest Work Truck Technology

What will work trucks look like in the future? The way we are progressing, they will be much more energy efficient, lightweight, and have driver-friendly telematics. I predict that Compressed Natural Gas will take over the heavy-duty vehicle market as the fuel of choice. We have already begun to see major increases in natural gas powered heavy-duty trucks. Enhanced batteries, improved aerodynamics, and lightweight material are more trends becoming standards in the work truck industry.

Greenhouse gas regulations are pushing innovation to take lead in the work truck industry. Simply put, companies are going to create economical work trucks in order to stay competitive and improve the market rather than because they have to. Competitive hybrids are using new ways to take advantage of electrical power such as electromagnetic rails.

In order to stay in the competition, companies will need to match equipment with fuel economy and design for customer value. Fleetwest Transferable Truck Bodies is doing just that with their line of Durashell service bodies for work trucks. Durashell service bodies are rugged, lightweight, and transferable. They improve fuel economy of work trucks and create more flexible fleets because they can easily transfer from one vehicle to another in minutes, fully loaded.
