Deciding Factor Was Real Cost of OwnershipSM
Jim and Cindy Fowler have been leased-on owner/operators to Landstar since 2005. They're a married couple that drives team all over the continental United States with their boxer named Toby. The freight they haul consists of consumer goods, hazardous materials, military loads and pretty much anything else that fits into a van trailer.
The Fowlers rely on Freightliner Trucks to keep their business rolling. Their Cascadia® Evolution is their livelihood, and our advances in fuel economy, connectivity and uptime are just some of the ways we're lowering the Fowlers' Real Cost of Ownership.
In the first six months of owning their Freightliner Cascadia Evolution, they were able to save over $13,000 in fuel costs alone. And because their Cascadia Evolution is equipped with the Detroit™ Virtual Technician™ onboard diagnostic system, the Fowlers are able to stay ahead of any repairs, keeping them on the road longer. That adds up to increased profitability and an easier path to success.
