Safety Tips for Fleet Trucks this Winter

It is that time of year again as winter approaches, to prepare your vehicle for safe driving.  For fleet trucks it is important to go over the basics of winter driving to be able to prevent any accidents.  One of the best ways to make sure that you’re driving safely during this season is to improve the contact points between the vehicle and the road surface, which will help avoid slipping and sliding in a vehicle.  It is also recommended that fleet companies opt for winter tires to maximize safety.  Other helpful tips are to always be aware of other drivers on the road, drive at the according speed limit and plan ahead by checking weather conditions before heading on the road.

 To enhance safety for fleet trucks, the Load'N'Go service bodies by Fleetwest Transferable Truck Bodies, such as the SecurityTop, are equipped with stainless steel, double locking T-handles, and made to protect expensive cargo from both theft and weather damage. They can be transferred from one pickup to another with optional four-corner lifting jacks, a crane, or a forklift via the built-in forklift tunnels. The Security Top fits all major makes of pickup trucks such as Chevy, Dodge, GMC and Ford short or longbed models. Some of its features include 2000lb capacity on floor above drawer, 1000lb capacity drawer, and double locking compartments (cylinder and padlock).

Future for Fleet Trucks

In 2013, Natural Gas Experts in Texas and Louisiana, launched their DuraDrive bi-fuel for fleet trucks.  Now they have announced that they have delivered the first natural gas half-ton pickup trucks, according to Hard Working Trucks.  Nat G CNG Solutions delivered 2015 model vehicles to a local business in Houston and San Antonio with a General Motors’ 5.3 liter direct injection engine.  This allowed for each fleet to be upgraded to run on either natural gas or gasoline using the DuraDrive natural gas system.  During the testing, the DuraDrive set a record for efficiency on an eight-cylinder natural gas truck by achieving 23 miles per gallon.  The CEO of one of the company’s that took part in the testing stated, “It’s just a no brainer, the savings are incredible,” in reference to their gas bill.

To further enhance your fleets savings look into the Load'N'Go ST-2000 by Fleetwest Transferable Truck Bodies.  It is light enough for aluminum-body pickup trucks and ideal for continuous fuel and maintenance fleet savings. Load'N'Go truck bodies are completely transferable, on and off a pickup truck in minutes with no-holes-drilled installation. This means flexibility and higher overall value for fleets.

Future for Chevy Pickups

"The technology of advanced high-strength steel makes the Chevrolet Silverado stronger, lighter, more capable and more efficient - and that's exactly what the Toughnology concept represents," said Jeff Luke, executive chief engineer for General Motors.  The Chevorlet Silverado Toughnology concept was revealed this past week, which showcases the concept for Silverado's connectivity technologies that includes an all-new OnStar 4G with built-in Wi-Fi hotspot.  The "toughnology" offers advanced high-strength steel that makes the Chevrolet Silverado stronger, lighter, more capable and more efficient.  The steel used can be up to 30 percent lighter than carbon steel, but still have the same strength, and is at a lower cost than aluminum, which helps keep down the overall cost of the vehicle.

For fleet trucks it is very important to stay efficient and a way to add to that is with Fleetwest Transferable Truck Bodies Load'N'Go services.  These transferable pickup tool boxes fit any short or long bed model Chevy truck, as seen in the pictures below. They are completely transferable on and off a pickup truck in minutes with no-holes-drilled installation for optimum flexibility.
