America's Top Private Fleets

The Great Recession has finally caught up with America’s Top 500 private fleets. For the first time since they annual survey began seven years ago, there is a significant drop in the number of trucks operated by the country’s largest fleets. Not only is this year’s truck total for our Top 500 12.5 % lower than last year it’s also lower than 2008’s total.
