JANUARY 2019 CV ENGINEER

 

Truck operating costs are the centre of attention in your January edition, now online. Our latest annual analysis reveals that the cost of operating trucks in the UK, taking all standing and running costs into account, rose over the past twelve months by between 3.8% for a two-axle, box-bodied rigid at 7.5 tonnes gvw and 4.6% for a 500hp 6x2 tractive unit operating at 44 tonnes gcw. Trailer operating costs generally rose less, unaffected by a sharp rise in the cost of diesel in the past year. One conclusion to be drawn from these bottom-line figures, we reckon, is that fleet managers and transport engineers deserve credit for having contained overall cost increases remarkably well so far, during a period of unprecedented economic and political uncertainty caused by Brexit and incompetent government ministers.
We hear from fleet managers on how they are trying to cope with this mayhem, from operators who have negotiated cuts in insurance premiums, and from workshop managers on what has been happening lately to parts prices and hourly charge-out rates.

People in the news this month include Pierre Lahutte, resigning as Iveco boss; Guy Heywood, leaving Michelin to join Hankook; Frank Thorpe, promoted to managing director at BYD UK; and Malcolm Logistics fleet engineer Gavin Summers on the thinking behind his company’s trial of an Iveco Stralis NP 460 tractive unit running on liquefied natural gas.

 

Trusted by professional fleet managers and transport engineers.
