Navigating The CARB Prebuy 

This year’s TMC show is more important than ever, as fleet executives continue to build for the upcoming CARB pre-buy. However, many of these executives are pondering the right strategy to minimize potentially large investments, with the mandates impacting their truck procurement cycles over the next few years.  

According to ACT Research, their analysts believe the new standards will result in the largest truck prebuy ever leading up to 2027, beginning in 2025 into 2026, with the cost of diesel trucks increasing between $25,000 and $30,000 more per unit. Fleet Advantage executives will provide a CARB Pre-Buy Allocation Consultationto help ensure fleets take a proactive, data-driven approach to their procurement cycles by planning over these next three years to achieve a lower total cost of ownership, while lowering their emissions. Sign up for a consultation here
