Truck pickup trucks are the backbone of the modern fleet.
They provide service and maintenance for every type of vehicle.
They’re also used by many families, such as farmers, hunters, and others who need to move the food from the farm to the grocery store.
But they’re also a big part of the truck fleet, especially in rural areas where the truck is needed for heavy equipment, towing, and other daily tasks.
And while they may seem like small parts, they can add up.
“It’s like a big chunk of a tractor,” says Bob Hildebrand, president of the Texas Transportation Association.
The industry needs to get the truck out of the back seat, and get trucks out of service sooner rather than later, he says.

Tractor parts are important for all kinds of equipment, including those used in commercial trucking.
“The main problem is, they have the parts and they don’t want to replace them,” Hildebrands says.
And the problem is even worse when the trucker’s truck is the one in need of a replacement, he adds.
The trucker needs to take care of the vehicle’s components and replace them, not the parts of the tractor that need replacing.
“We need a way to do it,” Hildebre is quick to point out.
That means making sure that the truck’s driver is well trained, with a good eye for the trucking industry’s biggest risks.
To help get the trucks out to the front and back, the industry has a number of programs, including the Truck Pickup and Transfer Program, which provides training for truckers and their families.
Some trucking companies also offer “pick-up and drop-off” services, which offer a small service or a bigger truck to pick up the driver from the site.
Hildbrens says these services can be especially valuable in rural communities.
“You can’t drive to the store and buy a truck.
That’s not a good idea,” he says, noting that many people rely on their own vehicles.
“There’s so much that’s going to be lost.”
That’s why he advocates for better training for both drivers and operators.
“I want to be able to be a truck driver,” he adds, “and have all these skills I need.”
