There are several ways of reducing the weight of an unloaded vehicle. This enables the payload – and likewise the revenue – to increase proportionally. Since the densities of different fuels vary, we’ve provided an example in kilos. By opting for aluminium rims, a directly mounted 5th wheel and a 4-spring rear suspension, you can increase your payload by around 200 kilos.
Here is a quick calculation:
Total payload: 20,000 kg
Annual revenue: 200,000 €
Increase in revenue per 200 kg of saved weight: 200 kg / 20,000 kg x 200,000 € = 2,000 €
