Building the Ultimate Pickup Work Truck

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

  • Working Out of Order. - Rather than 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 power train selection guesses instead of a careful analysis of horsepower and engine torque demands

Fleetwest offers innovative solutions to reduce operation costs and improve productivity. 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. A back saving addition is the aluminum slide which increases efficiency and aids in the technician's productivity.
