How to Chose the Right Truck Application for Your Business

Do You Know What the Best Truck Application for Your Business Is?
For certain business types, the choice is clear. Moving or delivery companies need a dry van truck. For food, meat purveyors or seafood delivery companies, a refrigerated truck would be in order.

Sometimes, however the choice is not so clear. In today’s commercial truck marketplace, there are numerous applications to choose from. How do you know whether a flatbed, dump body or utility body would best suit your business’ needs?

Hino To Produce New Line of Class 7 and 8 Trucks

Hino To Make Substantial Investment To Expand U.S. Operations
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Novi, MI – Hino announced today a substantial investment plan to strengthen its U.S. operations with the introduction of a new truck line and new facilities.

Today at a press conference, Hino announced its plan to purchase the former Cold Water Creek distribution center and convert it into its new truck assembly plant in Mineral Wells, West Virginia, close to its current plant.  The new plant, planned to be operational in early 2019, will also house cab assembly, an operation currently conducted in Japan.  “The new plant, which is four times the size of our current plant, will allow us to combine several assembly operations under one roof which will provide significant efficiency gains” noted Hino Motors Manufacturing U.S.A. president, Takashi Ono.  Also, West Virginia Governor Jim Justice stated, ““West Virginia has enjoyed a very good relationship with Hino. This new plant demonstrates that Hino has confidence in our state, and West Virginia is a great place to do business.  On behalf of everyone in the Mountain State, I thank Hino for their continued investment and the creation of new jobs.”

The total investment to the new plant will be approximately $100 million, creating about 250 new jobs in early 2020 over two shift operation.

In addition to producing Hino’s current award winning line up of conventional trucks, the new truck assembly plant in West Virginia will produce a new line of Class 7 and 8 trucks powered by Hino’s proven A09, 9-liter engine with a horsepower range from 300-360 HP, which Hino plans to introduce in 2019.  Hino is planning a public reveal of the new truck at the 2018 NTEA Work Truck Show.  “These are truly […]

Tips for Passing Your Next Roadside Inspection – Tech Tip Tuesday

According to recent FMCSA data, 20 out of every 100 vehicles (1 in 5) that get inspected receive an Out-of-Service (OOS) violation.
The difficulty of clearing road inspections is real. With more than 70,000 drivers and 200,000 vehicles receiving violation notices every year, it makes sense to give your drivers every chance to prepare for and pass roadside inspections.
To improve the success rate with roadside inspections you need to trace it back to where many of the problems originate from – issues with driver inspections, both pre and post-trip. Get that right and expect better results at your next roadside inspection.
Federal laws (DOT 392.7) require that no commercial motor vehicle (CMV) shall be driven unless the driver is satisfied. This implies that drivers should do a detailed visual inspection – service brakes, trailer brake connections, parking brakes, steering mechanisms, lighting devices, reflectors, horns, tires and windshield wipers – to make sure the vehicle is road-worthy and without observable defects.
The following helpful tips are bought to you by Telogis:
Tip # 1 – Educate your team
Tip # 2 – Review your fleet’s current state of play
Tip # 3 – Standardize your inspection process
Tip # 4 – Behavior-based management technology
