Why APUs are Necessary for Your Trucking CompanyRank Sharks

- Save energy
- Conserve fuel
- Compact design
- Up to a 5 year warranty
That’s what APUs for trucks can do for trucking companies and their drivers. The maintenance for trucks, especially the wide loads, can be very expensive in order to keep one intact for a good amount of time and that’s where APU units for trucks come into play. Idling laws change without a moment’s notice, so it’s important to stay informed and have an APU while also keeping it up to date.
In recent years, idling laws have cost trucking companies tons of money due to fines. Idling law requires 10 hours of rest to every 11 hours of driving. During down time, drivers often leave their trucks idling, which can easily cause unnecessary costs due to wasting fuel and wear and tear on the engine. That’s no good. Per worktruckonline.com,
“APUs enable truck fleets to substantially reduce fuel costs while still powering the amenities and tools drivers and crews need to perform their jobs most productively.”
On the flip side, APUs can be very expensive. Truck owners shouldn’t have to spend a ton of cash on something that trucks need.
