Out of these five million fleet trucks, 2.56 million were in the U.S. business fleet.
Based on estimates published by IHS Markit, the number of “in service” Class 8 trucks in the United States was expected to rise from 3.43 million in 2017 to 3.52 million in 2018.
The average number of class 8 trucks in the United States, in the time period between 2019 and 2023, was expected to reach 3.76 million.
According to the results obtained from the Annual Fleet Fuel Study conducted by the North American Council for Freight Efficiency or NACFE, fleets in the US registered an average mileage of 7.28 miles per gallon(mpg) over the course of the year 2017-2018.
The survey was done on 20 fleets, which were a mix of large and mid-sized fleets representing 72,000 Class 8 trucks in daycab and sleeper configurations.
According to a report, titled 'A Survey of Fuel Economy and Fuel Usage by Heavy-Duty Truck Fleets', published by the American Transportation Research Institute, fuel costs, as a percentage of operating costs, decreased as fleet size increased.
The median amount spent on fuel was 24 percent of total operating costs for all types of fleets.
However, itranged as high as 30 percent for the smallest fleets, and as low as 16 percent for the largest fleets.
