American Truck Showrooms Converts 90% of Rental Fleet to Diesel Particulate Filter, California Air Resources Board (CARB) Compliant Trucks.

GULFPORT, Miss., February 21, 2014- American Truck Showrooms (www.americantruckshowrooms.com), a leading certified pre-owned Class 8 truck dealership has recently converted 90% of its rental fleet to trucks containing Diesel Particulate Filters (or DPF) to comply with recent California Air Resources Board (CARB) regulations.

A DPF works to remove the majority of the mono- nitrogen oxides particulate matter or soot from burned diesel fuel. Soot is a natural byproduct of diesel fuel combustion.

Located on the inside of the filter, is a porous honeycomb structure that catches the soot as it passes. Over time, the soot accumulates and the filter either has to be replaced or the accumulated soot has to be incinerated passively through the use of a catalyst or by active means such as heating the filter to soot combustion temperatures.

On February 18, 2014 President Obama instructed the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Association (NHTSA) to create the “next stage” of fuel efficiency for medium and heavy duty trucks by March 2015, saying the standards are the key to “saving thousands of dollars every year” in fuel cost for all trucking companies small and large.

“We are in the process of eliminating non-compliant trucks from our program inventory. Currently, we are at about 90%, however by the time the new law goes into effect, our goal is to be at 100%, said the CEO of American Truck Showrooms.

To comply with the new regulations, ATS is offering CARB compliant trucks in their “Rent to Buy” American Dream Program. Drivers have the option to trade in their current truck and use it as part of the down payment for a newer model CARB compliant truck. Both the Gulfport and Atlanta locations have CARB compliant trucks in stock and ready to rent.

American Truck Showrooms – is the American Owner-Operator a Dying Breed?

American Truck Showrooms sees that currently there is a significant shortage of truckers. We need to move goods and the way they move is still very dependent on trucks. So, why the shortage of truckers with all of this demand?

The “Owner-Operator” is the trucker who has his own truck or trucks and “leases on” or enters into a contract with a certificated trucking company (may be called a motor carrier or haul source). The motor carrier has the “authority”, has purchased the insurance and obtains the loads that are to be delivered. The owner-operator provides the truck and the driver to deliver those loads. American Truck Showrooms and other dealers provide trucks to the owner-operators.

One huge problem for the Owner-Operator is…Read full article here
