Comdata Insights: Fleet Maintenance Costs


The ATRI’s 2016 Analysis of the Operational Costs of Trucking estimates that maintenance, repairs, and tires account for 13% of motor carrier costs, or $7.95 per hour.  As this is the third most significant carrier based cost, we got to thinking about how our customers spend on preventative maintenance, emergency maintenance, and tires…so we asked!

We had 123 survey respondents, with most (67%) falling into the 1-5 truck segment.  50% were independent owner-operators.  Most interestingly, customers have no pre-negotiated discounts for tires and maintenance.  Owner-operators spend over $13,000 per year on maintenance costs!
