Green Truck Association is commemorating its 10th anniversary

 Green Truck Association is commemorating its 10th anniversary this year.  Since it has been established, it has been committed to improving the efficiency and productivity of work trucks.  See the article that is posted in the NTEA for more information.

The NTEA was established in 1964; the Association for the Work Truck Industry represents more than 2,100 companies that manufacture, distribute, install, sell and repair commercial trucks, truck bodies, truck equipment, trailers and accessories.

Fleetwest's transferable truck bodies are also committed to efficiency and productivity of work trucks.  Because our truck bodies are transferable, it reduces the number of trucks a fleet has to have on hand.  The truck body can be moved from one truck to another if there are breakdowns or accidents.  In addition, Fleetwest Truck Bodies are versatile.  Your truck can be used for both work and personal, just by slipping it on/off the truck body.

Having a transferable service body from Fleetwest is one way to increase your fuel economy in your pickup  work truck.  Fleetwest offers fiberglass units that are ergonically engineered and lightweight to reduce fuel consumption.

Building the Optimal Work Truck

 When you’re building a work truck, there are numerous specs that need to be factored correctly to avoid costly oversights. Make sure you consider a vehicle’s operating guidelines and payload requirements. A smart fleet manager should talk with the people in the field to understand what type of service the vehicle is expected to perform and how it needs to be used. During that discussion with the technicians, you may discover problems that they have encountered in their everyday use that may have been over looked.

It’s not uncommon to uncover issues with insufficient tool storage or lack of bins, limited visibility, loading height restrictions and poor payload distribution. It is essential to understand how a vehicle will be loaded and unloaded. Do they need lifts, ramps or even slide out trays? The more you understand the vehicle or upfit deficiencies the more efficient your next build will be. Not to mention your technician’s performance and satisfaction will be.
