PIB TIP: EVALUATE USED TRUCKS. Ask to see information from a truck’s onboard computer from the dealer and carefully review the report’s details on idle time, brake actuation per thousand miles, the number of panic stops per thousand miles and time spent in each gear. Then compare your findings to statistics from your independent mechanic. The Partners in Business program is produced by Overdrive and the consultants at ATBS, the nation’s largest owner-operator business services firm, and is sponsored by Freightliner Trucks.
