November 2015

In late November Terminal Transport took delivery of the last group
of 2016 International Prostars. These new trucks are equipped with Eaton
Automatic transmissions and Cummins ISX engines. These trucks are already
improving the fleet miles per gallon ration as they are running in the 7.2-
7.5 range of MPG. Driver acceptability to the new automatic transmissions
has been excellent. Drivers have been impressed with the smoothness of
shifting and the power that the trucks have when approaching hills. Terminal
Transport goal for 2016 is to improve the fleets Miles per Gallon from 6.57
in 2015 to over 7.35 miles per gallon in 2016. This would be a 12%
improvement in MPG and a reduction of a similar amount in fuel costs, saving
an estimated of over 100,000 gallons of fuel.
