Average Percent Capacity Volume Utilization for SmartWay Fleets, by Category
Posted June 4, 2013
Based on 2011 Carrier Partner data, this chart shows the average percent capacity volume utilization for SmartWay trucks, segregated by operational category. Capacity volume is a measure of the cargo-carrying capacity of the vehicle. Since the capacity volume when loaded to legal limits may be less than the total volume (i.e., maximum weight within allowable limits may be reached before the vehicle "cubes out"), the remaining volume is left unused. The percent capacity volume utilization is the percent of available capacity that is actually used when the vehicle is loaded. The capacity volume varies with the vehicle type.
The data represent averaged fleet percentages of capacity volume utilization within each truck category when loaded, and include all SmartWay operational category types across the truck classes (2B through 8B).
