Trucking Companies Improve Operating Costs

Platinum Power Group is dedicated to increasing Caterpillar diesel engine horsepower, performance and fuel mileage savings. Our mission, indirectly has helped thousands of Independent/ Private Carriers, Freight Companies, School Districts and CAT Diesel engine owners improve bottom-line operational costs. Given the current economic climate we realize our customer's primary concerns include improving operations and staying in business.

Difficult times aside, the trucking industry remains a highly resilient component of the US economy. Many of our customers have been able to quickly adjust operations and costs to weather the recessionary storm. Another company that is helping our industry do just that is Oklahoma based, FairTran LLC. This company caught our attention with their patent-pending broadcasting portal devoted to truckers, owner-operators, and small trucking companies who stay ahead of the curve with up-to-date information.

Trucking companies need to be able to figure costs per mile to see if they are making a profit. However, some costs frequently change. Company owners and owner-operators may not be informed about current costs and could possibly make bad business decisions as a result. solves this problem by gathering current costs, combining them with personalized trucking company information, calculating them against industry standards and sending the result to the trucking company via email, Twitter, and texts so the company can be up-to-date no matter where they are.

“It is our hope that FairTran will bring unity, fairness, and respect back to those who do the work - the trucking companies - who, until now, haven’t had a gauge and standard to point to,” said Charlie Collins, FairTran, LLC’s president.
