The decision to own, rent, or leasing trucks is not an all-or-nothing choice. Each option can have a place in your fleet, and you may use all three as trucking transitions to alternative fuels. This is unlikely to change as we move into a future when there will be many more options for powering vehicles.
Given the myriad choices of powertrain options available for all duty cycles—battery-electric, hydrogen fuel cell, hydrogen internal combustion, renewable diesel, biodiesel, compressed natural gas, liquified natural gas, and traditional diesel and gasoline power—it makes a great deal of sense to switch from ownership to leasing.
No one knows with any degree of certainty what the maintenance requirements will be for these new alternative-fuel vehicles, but we do know it’s going to require a different technician skill set to maintain and repair them.
When you opt for full-service leasing, the lessor takes on the responsibility for the maintenance and repair of the asset and you pay a set fee each month. This option also removes the burden of having to find technicians who are properly trained to work on these new vehicles. Given the current technician shortage, finding and training techs can be a time-consuming task. Buying an asset outright might make sense in some scenarios, especially if you plan to keep an asset for an extended period of time.
In addition, if you want to try a new technology before you buy it, a short-term rental makes sense so you can see how the technology performs in your operation. Opting for a short-term rental allows you to check out how manufacturer claims about a product stack up in your real-world operating environment.
