It’s time to start cutting costs. FTR noted late last week that it views February as likely the last positive for its trucking condition index.
Ouch. Not a fun headline. But that’s our short-term reality. Smart fleets will start optimizing its equipment utilization, squeezing out every fraction of fuel efficiency they can, stepping up their preventative service game and strengthening its industry partnerships to pull through the downturn.

He has analyzed the data and come up with his top ideas for how you can use your trucks’ data to reduce your costs now. I connected with him to talk everything from reducing the number of vehicles to bring down overhead costs to fighting fuel fraud. Watch the video above for all the insight. (Pun intended. I love puns.)
