Based on 2011 Carrier Partner data, this chart shows the average payload for SmartWay trucks, segregated by operational category. It includes each of the SmartWay operational category types defined for the 2011 data year, across all truck classes (2B through 8B). The data represent averaged fleet payloads within each category when loaded, excluding the vehicle weight and empty backhaul.

This chart, based on Carrier Partner data for 2011, shows the average vehicle payloads across SmartWay Class 6 truck fleets. Class 6 trucks span a range of uses, including school buses, beverage trucks, bucket trucks, package delivery trucks, and others.

The line is made up of individual points, each of which corresponds to one fleet's average payload, and shows that the majority of payloads carried by SmartWay Carriers' Class 6 trucks fall between 2 and 5 tons. The data represent average payload when loaded, and do not include the vehicle weight or account for empty miles. To preserve confidentiality, no fleet name is associated with any data point.

This chart shows the average payloads across SmartWay Class 7 truck fleets, based on 2011 data reported by Carrier Partners. Like Class 6 trucks, Class 7 trucks span a range of uses, with this higher weight-rated class including moving vans, dump trucks, city buses, tankers, tractor-trailers, and others.

The line is made up of individual points, each of which corresponds to one fleet's average payload. It indicates that the majority of payloads carried by SmartWay Carriers' Class 7 fleets range from about 4 to 8 tons. The data represent average payload when loaded, and do not include the vehicle weight or empty miles. To preserve confidentiality, no fleet name is associated with any data point.
