Vehicare is the best solution for the food and beverage industry! 

  
INDUSTRY TRENDS

According to the National Private Truck Council, there are some industry trends that are affecting the industry including:

  • Shortage of fleet reinvestment in the heavy truck market through the recession resulting in an aging fleet, as well as recent investment in more efficient units
  • Emissions regulations causing a jump in the price of new Class 8 units
  • Lower oil prices providing relief to freight rates
  • Base freight rates climbing for dry freight, reefer freight and flatbeds 
  • Driver shortages and driver retention challenges in an environment where drivers have customer service concerns and on-time pressures
  • Companies comingling their food and beverage deliveries, especially to convenience and gas stations. This allows them to make deliveries to large and small retailers on one route using the same truck. This also allows for less miles and less fuel usage because of efficient routing
