What are the problems faced by the trucking industry?
There are many issues in the trucking industry, some major problems are listed below:
Regulation: The regulations or fleet rules for truck and driver safety are created by the government. But remembering all of them is a hard task. Moreover, many times it creates an extra expense for fleet and driver.
Fuel Saving: Increasing fuel prices and their wastage is a big issue as this affects the fleet budget. So managing multiple trucks at the same time is next to impossible. Moreover annual and monthly fuel tax calculation is hard.
Tire failure: A truck can have 4 or more tires according to their size. So managing them becomes difficult for the trucking industry to keep count of each tire and reduce tire failures. This leads to tire damage and thus decreases tire life.
Cashflow: A truck has many expenses which include the operational and repair cost. But these costs are not maintained properly from the first day and lead to confusion while calculating monthly or annual expenses. Moreover, you will have to collect all the bills and wait for the end of the month or year to know all the expenses and to calculate them.
