Trucking fleets transport everything from fresh produce to Christmas trees, keeping our country running 365 days a year. And with an expected growth of 21 percent over the next 10 years, the trucking industry is one to keep an eye on.
Right now, trucking is the most common mode of commercial transportation, garnering a total of 83.7 percent of all revenue. Other methods of transporting commercial goods include rail (5.6 percent), pipeline (4.6 percent) and air (3.2 percent).
These and more trucking statistics can be found on the infographic pictured below: A Hidden Giant – The American Trucking Industry by the Numbers.
The fuel that keeps these fleets running is just as important as the trucks and trailers themselves. Earlier this year, Cenex announced one of the first premium diesel fuels on the market to contain an advanced injection stabilizer that cleans up and prevents injector deposits from occurring, and therefore helps keep trucks operating at their full potential.
Compared to typical, untreated #2 diesel fuel, Cenex Roadmaster XL® premium highway diesel fuel:
• Improves fuel economy by as much as 5 percent.
• Increases power by up to 4.5 percent.
• Boosts lubricity by 10 to15 percent.
• Extends the life of injectors/injector pumps.
• Reduces maintenance costs.
• Has a higher cetane number (typically 48).
• Cleans up & prevents injector fouling
Cenex premium diesel fuel makes a big difference in both on- and off-road equipment. For more information on our full line of fuel products, visit www.cenex.com.
