Kenworth Truck Co has produced a free White Paper on Life Cycle Cost that offers ways for fleets and owner-operators to get the most for their money over the life of their vehicles.
The 26-page white paper offers information that can be used to track and control long-term costs of operation. It is available for download at www.kenworth.com under “Learn How To Reduce the Life Cycle Cost of Your Vehicle” and upon request from Kenworth dealers.
This publication examines six major areas: spec'ing the right truck, fuel economy, maintenance and customer support, trade cycles and the buying decision, financing and fixed costs, and driver retention.
To obtain this white paper, access www.kenworth.com or contact Brandhammer, 121 Lake St South, Suite 201, Kirkland WA 98033.
