Ryder releases TCO-related white paper

News Truck Parts and Service Staff December 9, 2013

When it comes to the total cost of fleet ownership, Ryder says there are obvious costs to consider. But the bottom-line impact of fleet maintenance goes far beyond the obvious.

In a new white paper found HERE, Ryder breaks down how new engine technology and stricter emissions regulations have led fleet maintenance costs to rise sharply.

And while most costs are obvious, tires, parts, supplies, technician salaries, total cost of ownership also includes hidden costs, Ryder says, such as related expenses for employees who support your fleet and maintenance functions. The white paper above is designed to break down those costs and the effects they have on your fleet customers.

Ryder also released a white paper on preventive maintenance last month. It can be found HERE.
