Designing the Ultimate Work Truck

When designing a work truck, the objective should be to optimize the vehicle to achieve the best overall return for dollar spent.  Being that a work truck is a piece of equipment that helps your employees do their jobs, it is important that the equipment enhances productivity.  When it comes to designing a good working work truck there are three common mistakes that occur, according to NTEA director of fleet relations:

Working Out of Order: rather the starting with addressing the body and equipment, many people start the specification-writing process with the truck chassis.
Doing What You’ve Always Done: make sure to keep up with changes rather than replicating an existing vehicle
Taking Your Best Guess:  in many cases, truck designers make powertrain selection guesses instead of a careful analysis of horsepower and engine torque demands

A great addition to consider when designing a work truck is the Fleetwest Load’N’Go ST-2000.  The Load’N’Go ST-2000 is a fully transferable truck body even when loaded.  This means flexibility and higher overall value for fleets. An optional 1000 lb capacity drawer can be added to the Load'N'Go ST-2000 to provide extra organized storage in addition to the double-locking side compartments.
