Trucks With Fuel Efficiency Standards

Trucks With Fuel Efficiency Standards

Truck owners must take responsibility for their vehicles ensuring they are energy-efficient and reduce the amount of pollutants they release into the atmosphere.

It is shocking to think that the large trucks that populate the roads make up a tiny fraction of the road users, about 4%. However, staggeringly they account for nearly 20 % of the greenhouse gasses that are produce through vehicles on the road.

This is just one reason the government is looking for ways to help address this situation and to get companies involved in reducing the toxic fumes that large trucks are emitting.

The problem in the moving business, many companies are small, their trucks are not new, and the likelihood of a new vehicle is very slim. Looking at different ways that business owners can start to address the problems they are facing when the fuel efficiency standards come into force.

There is less than a year before some of the standards are going to come into force but this is for new vehicles. There is no indication as to whether the system is going to effect the long-term businesses through demanding more energy-efficient vehicles or if the older vehicles are acceptable long-term.

There is a need to produce and use lorries that are not polluting the atmosphere but at what cost to the moving business. It is very difficult to assume that a business must upgrade their vehicles when they need to show profitability, the cost of new vehicles is high, understanding how this is going to work is unclear. However, those companies that are able to push forward with economical vehicles will benefit from resources and expert advice from the Department of Energy.

However, this is going to have a big impact on the moving industry as a whole, but promoting greener vehicles is benefiting the planet long-term.
