The percentage of vehicles equipped with automated manual transmissions (AMTs) continues to grow – in fact, almost 40 percent of new Mack trucks sold last year were spec’d with a Mack® mDRIVE™.
Anyone who manages a fleet of vehicles has heard these words from their drivers before – turns hard, won’t turn, locks up, hangs up, oversteers, feels shaky, runs noisy.

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.
As drivers and fleets begin to use electronic logging devices (ELDs), it may seem that they’re more trouble than they’re worth. But make no mistake – the federal ELD rule is designed to protect the safety of both drivers and the public.
With new CK-4 engine oils now on the market and in your trucks, you’re sure to be enjoying longer drain intervals and fewer oil changes. That’s because the advanced wear protection and viscosity control of this new class of oils can better handle higher underhood temperatures for longer periods of time than previous oil formulations.
Snow, ice, slush, fog – winter weather can be a real inconvenience for a heavy-duty truck driver. But more importantly, it can also be a real danger.
