Work Smarter, Not Harder

The Load'N'Go Security Top by Fleetwest Transferable Truck Bodies featured in the YouTube video above was customized specially for a communications company. Features were added so electrical technicians could easily work off-road and at night. LED lights were installed on the inside of this unit and inside the side compartments for easy access to tools and equipment at night. The LED lighting is controlled by a push/pull switch in the side cabinet, and can also be turned off when the technician closes the side compartment door for convenience.

A ladder rack with a snub-nose includes ratchets on the side to firmly secure ladders to the rack so they don't come loose in rough terrain. A 1000 lb capacity, 100% extension pull-out slide was added to this unit featuring a backboard so nothing falls off the back of the slide. A recess key-holder with locking cap securely stores additional keys for the unit. A camera with microphone was installed on the back of the unit so technicians can see and hear what's behind them. A remote-controlled spotlight provides added vision at night to light up the work area from a distance. Finally, a bumper winch kit has been added to the front of the work truck for optimum safety if a technician gets stuck in the field.

NAFA's Sustainability for Fleets

At this year’s NAFA 2015 Institute and Expo they announced the release of the Sustainable Fleet Accreditation Program.  This program is a revolutionary step towards how fleets adhere to sustainable practices.  The program is designed as a tool for fleet management professionals to help increase efficiency, reduce emissions, and conserve fuel for their businesses, according to NAFA.  It is also in collaboration with CALSTART, which is a national non-profit clean transportation organization.  The overall goal of the program is to help fleet professionals improve performance of their fleets and reduce their expenses.    As stated by the NAFA CEO Phillip Russo, “As an industry, we have a unique opportunity to make a difference for the environment.”

Another way in which fleet managers have the opportunity to enhance their fleets is with Fleetwest Transferable Truck Bodies and create the perfect on-the-job vehicle for work trucks with the Durashell and Load'N'Go.  Fleetwest Transferable Truck Bodies slip on and off most major brand pickup trucks in minutes with no-holes-drilled installation for flexibility and fleet savings.  Call your Fleetwest representative at 480-736-8800 to get a quote today on a transferable truck body such as the Load'N'Go Security Top pictured below.
