Fleets look to outsource maintenance, vehicle work

Engine WorkAt a panel at the Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week, held this week in Las Vegas, John Blodgett of MacKay & Company, said that fleets are beginning to evaluate whether it is worth it to keep maintenance in-house or to focus more on their primary goal — transport. 

Blodgett said at an HDAW panel that 82 percent of fleets responding to a MacKay survey wanted to outsource more service than they currently do, and another survey showed that by 2016, the number of fleets performing all maintenance in-house would drop from 75 percent to 69 percent.
