Graham Trucking upgrades aging fleet with new Mack trucks
OAKLAND, CA (Dec. 20, 2017) — Mack Trucks recently hosted six Share the Road program drivers and displayed a Mack Anthem™ model at an Oakland Raiders game in Oakland, California. Mack is the primary sponsor of Share the Road, an American Trucking Associations highway safety program that educates all drivers about sharing the roads safely with large trucks.
GREENSBORO, NC (Dec. 7, 2017) – A Mack® truck prototype equipped with a proprietary and fully integrated plug-in hybrid electric driveline recently participated in a zero-emission eHighway demonstration in Carson, California.
GREENSBORO, NC (Dec. 5, 2017) – Mack Trucks and Petty’s Garage, the high-performance speed shop founded in 2008 by NASCAR legend Richard Petty, recently inked a partnership agreement naming Mack the official transportation sponsor for the Garage.
Long-term success in a competitive field like drayage requires adaptability and a willingness to explore new technologies and practices. At Seattle-based Graham Trucking, success meant upgrading their aging fleet, even though many of their older Mack® trucks were still performing well, some after decades of use. Improved fuel mileage, lower repair costs and more driver amenities made the new models an obvious choice.
Here’s a statistic that may surprise you: on average, weather-related delays cost trucking companies between $2.2 billion and $3.5 billion annually, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation.
The suspension systems on today’s trucks are lighter — and tougher — than ever before. And that’s good news for fleet owners and the industry in terms of reduced fuel use and longer maintenance intervals.
