How does a company that relies on trucks fight higher fuel costs? One way would be to replace the fleet with newer trucks featuring gas-saving features. But what about companies that have to make due with the fleet they have?
Fleet Equipment magazine’s website features a profile of regional hauler Hurricane Marine Transport (HMT) Inc. in Findlay, Ohio.
According to the story, HTM’s President explains how fuel costs affect every part of business and every bit of savings helps lessen the burden on cash flow.
One way HTM saves money on fuel is by standardizing engines. By using one model of Detroit Diesel engine, HTM uses proprietary software to troubleshoot problems and maximize performance.
