This will drive truck owners towards Large Fleet and OE service versus conducting in-house service. Consistent increase in need for tools, equipment and labor costs will raise maintenance costs. The number of smaller (1 to 5) truck fleets is forecast to increase at a faster rate than the larger (25 or more) fleets. These smaller fleets do not have on-site repair and maintenance facilities.
