Podcast: Making smart decisions about when to replace your older trucks

One of the most important considerations for fleet managers is how long you want to keep your trucks. Are you the type of fleet who wants to run every truck for a million miles, or do you want to keep a tight trade-in cycle so you’re almost always operating relatively new equipment. In this episode of the Fleet Future podcast, we spoke with Jim Griffin, chief operating officer and chief technology officer for Fleet Advantage, to ask him about how Fleet Advantage evaluates truck life cycles, and what fleets should be looking for.
