Fleet regionalization is an important business organization concept being widely adopted by truck transportation companies. This regionalization allows companies to reduce operational costs while offering major increases in transportation efficiencies. There is a definite trend towards this concept across truck transportation businesses as they plan strategies for 2023. The shift moves away from a national approach to a series of efficient regional level structures. Regionalization of fleets enables transportation companies to improve driver and truck turnaround time, providing increases in efficiency and offering significant cost incentives. Other major advantages of fleet regionalization include increased ports of entry, intermodal system capabilities, and shorter travel distances.
The outlook for 2023 and beyond sees an increase in mergers and acquisitions allowing companies to expand their business reach in each of their strategic new regions, further supporting the fleet regionalization paradigm.
