Commercial trucking fleets often rely on fuel to power a vehicle’s charging system. To quantify the costs, let’s assume an idling truck burns a gallon of fuel an hour for 4 hours a day, 5 days a week, 50 weeks a year at a price of $4 per gallon. This means the truck has literally burned $4,000. Multiply that number by the number of trucks in a fleet and the cost of idling starts to become very high.

Purkeys has put a lot of effort into helping fleets reduce those costs. The company has developed customized solutions and products that will protect a vehicle’s batteries, reduce the run time and reduce fuel costs:

  • Inverters – have logic inside that shuts off when batteries reach a predetermined voltage.
  • Liftgate Charging Systems – will reduce charge time and run time to fully charge liftgate batteries.
  • TAPS – Keeps accessories such as electric pallet jacks charged, which reduces downtime.

Purkeys also uses their 25 years of electrical experience to provide advice to fleets, train technicians on troubleshooting and develop customized battery programs specific to a fleet’s needs. All of these services and products are small savings upfront but over time can add up to millions of dollars.
