Freightliner Trucks Drive Profitability - Freightliner Trucks
On the highway or on the jobsite, Freightliner trucks are always a smart business decision. Lowering RCO in either place to deliver real value, Freightliner trucks help your business run smart, maximizing profitability by offering integrated business solutions based on five key pillars:
Freightliner on-highway trucks have a simple formula for savings. The less you spend on fuel, the more money you make. It really is that simple. Alternative fuel and lightweight options are also available and customizable to fit business needs.
Freightliner products feature world-class design and advanced aerodynamics. An excellent example of both, the Cascadia Evolution achieves an up-to-seven-percent increase in fuel economy when compared to our first-generation, EPA 2010-compliant Cascadia model. That’s because Detroit® has designed, engineered and manufactured the DD15® engine, DT12® transmission and tandem drive axles to work together as a single, integrated Detroit powertrain. This level of integration with Detroit components built-in results in some of the most fuel-efficient trucks on the road, maximizing fuel economy and lowering RCO.
Smart data solutions drive efficiencies and improve your bottom line. Detroit Connect® telematics enable the capture, transmission and analysis of data directly from your trucks, connecting the driver with service centers, home base and engineers offering quick diagnosis of fault codes. Virtual Technician takes the guesswork out of engine repair; visibility fleet software delivers sophisticated, real-time data on vehicles routing, location and idle time; and the on-board tablet simplifies driver communication and record-keeping.
Healthy, protected, stress-free drivers are more productive drivers, and Freightliner trucks deliver protection on the road. With industry-leading passive and active, standard and optional safety features, the Cascadia and Cascadia Evolution include up to 36 available safety features and boast an ergonomically designed, noise-minimizing cab that meets European and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) requirements, contributing to overall driver comfort, safety and fatigue reduction. Operator visibility and ergonomics, both design focal points, help to minimize driver fatigue. The Freightliner In-Cab Training (FIT) System even offers drivers full-body, health-enhancing exercise workouts in the comfort of their own cabs.
Balancing toughness and efficiency with industry-leading excellence in design, engineering and manufacturing, the Freightliner Cascadia and Cascadia Evolution were designed for maximized reliability and longevity from the very beginning. Each Freightliner model, built with quality construction and durable materials, undergoes rigorous testing to ensure it meets or exceeds customer expectations and business needs, delivering profitability for years. Implementing cutting-edge manufacturing technology, including robotics and automated systems, enables Freightliner to achieve precision results. High-quality construction and durable materials help our trucks hold their value, which is why the Cascadia and Cascadia Evolution have the highest resale value in the industry.
Staying up and running is always a priority because if your truck’s not on the road, it’s not making you money, which is why uptime is a key pillar. Detroit Connect telematics solutions help capture, transmit and analyze problems to get trucks back on the road faster, and when you need service, Freightliner’s got you covered.
