"Ed, Shave off about 8% to 12% of that costs. This equate to about $300 to $900 back each month for one truck as it is for some of our Owner Operators. One of of our large fleets tested out 7 months and ended up at 19.11 % between the two test units…"

STYLE IS BEYOND THE CLOSET & WHAT YOU LOOK LIKE...IT'S SMALL GESTURES, LIKE BEING GRACIOUS TO WAITSTAFF, THE PERSON WHO MIGHT PUMP YOUR FUEL AND OF COURSE DRIVERS. THAT IS WHAT SETS YOU APART.
