A study by Virginia Tech Transportation Institute’s Center for Truck and Bus Safety set out to identify exactly what commercial motor vehicle fleets can do to improve their safety culture and significantly reduce crashes.
The research team worked with trucking insurers and state trucking associations to identify carriers that successfully improved safety outcomes. Safety improvements involved Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration-reportable crashes, less-severe crashes, insurance claims, and/or Compliance, Safety, and Accountability (CSA) Behavior Analysis and Safety Improvement Category (BASIC) scores.
The research team interviewed nine of these fleets to document the strategies they used. They found that successful strategies included:

According to Automotive Fleet, it’s more important than ever to carefully maintain your vehicles. Supply chain constraints, in particular the ongoing microchip shortages, continue to slow new-vehicle production while there continues to be strong end-user demand that exceeds supply. This has limited the availability of replacement units for many fleets, forcing vehicle service lives to be extended. These higher-mileage vehicles tend to have a greater frequency of maintenance issues typically involving longer downtime due to more extensive repairs.
These concerns have increased the importance of maintaining your owned vehicles with “fleet preservation” strategies to mitigate the negative impact of operating higher-mileage vehicles beyond their normal lifecycles.
Preserve your current fleet:
Protect your corporate image
Reduce odometer miles and engine hours
Acquisition strategies for MY-2023
The other option is to call Enterprise Truck Rental and get a quote for the Flex-E-Rent program. Flexible rentals for days, weeks, months or even years, without the hassle of managing maintenance and preservation.
