The Importance of Commercial Fuel Solutions for Excavating Companies
With the advancement in mechanization in recent years, many building contractors have invested in incorporating hybrid technology with construction equipment and vehicles such as excavators to optimize their energy efficiency. In addition, advanced radar technology and GPS now installed in these vehicles allow contractors to pre-program and automate their building operations to increase productivity and efficiency. This enables building companies to save on labor and fuel costs while reducing the amount of time to complete the work.
Diesel is a major component of this progress. The construction industry contributes a lucrative $850 billion to the country’s economy, in part thanks to diesel. The fuel essentially runs the construction sector and is responsible for 98% of the industry’s energy use. It also accounts for more than 55% of the off-road fuel usage in the United States.
