Close to a quarter of transportation costs are linked to diesel fuel consumption. Taking into consideration the fuel’s price fluctuations, and despite the evolution of tractor performance, diesel has continued to amount to between 20% - 28% of costs for articulated units and 14% - 19% for porters. That’s a cost well worth investigating.
