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).

This chart, based on Truck Carrier Partner data for 2011, shows the average percent capacity volume utilization for SmartWay trucks, segregated by truck class. Capacity volume is a measure of the cargo-carrying capacity of the vehicle and varies with the vehicle type. The average percent capacity volume utilization is a relative indicator of efficiency.

The data represent averaged fleet percentages of capacity volume utilization when loaded, for each class of SmartWay trucks.

This chart shows the average percent capacity volume utilization across SmartWay Class 8B fleets, based on 2011 data reported by Truck Carrier Partners. Capacity volume is a measure of the cargo-carrying capacity of the vehicle, and the average percent capacity volume utilization is a relative indicator of efficiency. The capacity volume varies with the vehicle type.
