Specifying new Class 8 trucks with the latest technology requires hundreds of decisions about everything from the impact of new technology on preventive maintenance programs to the choice of components that will make the vehicle driver-friendly. One great resource for this complex decision-making is the local truck dealer, while another is a third-party service provider who can help get the specs right, said Jim Sweeney, Vice President of Capital Equipment for AmeriQuest Transportation Services in a blog posting.

"Improving a fleet's operations used to be the fleet manager's top priority," Sweeney said. "But adhering to government directives has trumped that. Technology like SCR, the emissions reduction system, comes with a high price tag and can have a big impact on the acquisition cost of the vehicle."

Sweeney noted that, while natural gas-powered vehicles currently make up less than 1% of the nation's heavy duty trucks, some fleet managers are considering adding them to the fleets because of the low fuel cost and the availability of government funding that a growing number of states is providing. He also pointed ...
... out that the current driver shortage should also play a factor in specifying new trucks. "A driver-friendly vehicle can be the key difference in the campaign to attract qualified drivers," he said.

Jim Sweeney's blog, posted on the AmeriQuest Transportation Services Website, discusses several more factors that should or could impact Class 8 truck specifications. The entire blog can be viewed at http://blog.ameriquestcorp.com/cover-every-base-during-new-vehicle-specification-process/.
