According to the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration, more than 70 percent of roads in the U.S. are located in regions that typically receive more than five inches of annual snowfall. With many commercial fleets using these snow-prone routes on a regular basis, preparing vehicles and drivers for winter conditions is a task most companies need to address.
Regularly maintaining heavy-duty vehicles is one of the most important things fleets can do to control costs and keep their trucks operating efficiently. Implementing a fleet maintenance plan is an easy way to record the repairs and replacements you need. The TMcare program from FleetNet America® is an easy way to make sure all vehicles remain in good condition.
Refrigerated trailers, also known as reefer trailers, have made the distribution of temperature-sensitive freight possible for nearly 150 years. This equipment is also commonly called a reefer truck; however it’s important to note that often the refrigeration equipment is on the trailer and not the truck itself. As reefer technology advances, products like foodstuffs, pharmaceuticals, paintings, antiques, makeup and computers can be shipped faster and more conveniently.
