Patrick Gaskins, Group Vice President of Financial Services with AmeriQuest Transportation Services, highly recommends that fleets adopt an asset replacement strategy that assures that the average age of equipment remains fairly consistent. Benefits of even fleet aging include.

  • Predictable resale value
  • More effective budgeting
  • Improved fuel economy
