Waste and recycling fleet managers are under more pressure than ever. Everyone wants more, more, more—more data, more information and better results for the lowest cost possible.
“Fleet managers are experiencing pressure from their organizations to get the most out of their trucks while keeping costs low,” says Bryan Dodds, director of aftermarket product development for McNeilus Truck and Manufacturing. “There is also a constant pressure from their customers to be responsive to their issues, questions, or concerns.”
New rules and regulations at the local, state and federal government levels can also be a big source of pressure, Dodds adds. In particular, he points to municipalities that now require trucks to have additional safety features and recordable video capabilities.
