Trucking companies that see an uptick in business during the summer can breathe a sigh of relief. According to a report from Time Magazine, gas prices throughout the United States have stabilized, and a price drop shouldn’t be too far off. This speculation is based off market trends in June, a month when oil companies complete seasonal maintenance over the last five years.
Although gas prices may see a drop soon, trucking companies shouldn’t depend solely on the price drop to help them save money this summer. After all, maximizing profits should be a task that is done year-round. Fortunately, there are many ways to help reduce costs, yet maintain the productivity level of your fleet.
