    • Are you considering updating your company's heavy trucks and trailers and, if so, what factors do you use to make these decisions? One thing is certain, there is no right or wrong answer, as a crop farmer’s needs will be completely different than a regional general freight motor carrier.
    • In my role as Trucking Specialist with Acuity, I have the privilege of meeting a great many motor carriers. Though many are cutting-edge and understand their costs and effectively work to address them, others, including smaller firms, struggle understanding how to integrate safety into their operations and reduce claims, fines, maintenance costs, and driver turnover.
    • Depending how long you have been around the trucking industry, you may remember when dispatch records were recorded on paper by hand. Later, companies used computers and software such as Excel and QuickBooks that were more efficient than paper but still required data entry and time-consuming searches for records.
