Logistic differential equations are useful when it comes to determining the number and type of vehicles a given company uses to transport its workers.
The equations tell you the number (or number and types) of trucks, cars and other vehicles that a given business needs to operate.
KBX has its own logistic equation for calculating the total number of vehicles in its fleet, but the Crowley division of Logistics & Logistics provides an even simpler equation for determining the type of vehicle it is.
KBx is the largest trucking company in the country and Crowley provides the division with a “big trucking” equation that works for all its trucks.
A company can choose to calculate its total number, type and number of trucks using a combination of KBx’s logistic equations and Crowleys own.
KBs own equation for estimating the number trucks is based on its fleet of trucks that it operates.
“The logistic differences between the KBX fleet and the Crowleys fleet and between the various types of trucks are so small that it is possible to estimate the number,” said Kyle Rafferty, vice president of operations for KBx.
“I think a lot of companies would rather not deal with this type of calculation.
It is really only a small percentage of trucks being used, which is really why it is a good idea to go the Crowly route.”
A lot of truckers use KBxs trucks for freight operations because it’s the only one that can handle that volume.
The KBx truck is capable of carrying about 100,000 pounds of cargo a day, or about 300,000 to 500,000 tons a year, depending on its size and weight.
KB is also the only trucking division in the state of Texas that is equipped with a full-time truck driver.
“There are a lot more companies than KBx in Texas that have full-timers,” said Rafferts father, Doug Rafferter, a truck driver himself.
“That is a lot, but it’s just the nature of the business.”
In fact, KBx has a total of nearly 3,000 full- and part-time employees in the United States, according to data compiled by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
But KBx employs about 1,000 of those full- time workers through the Crowllys trucks, said Rachter.
“It’s not a big amount, but a lot to keep people employed,” said Crowley spokesman Brian DeRuyter.
He said that the trucks are leased to the company from a third party and that it pays the lease company about $20,000 a year.
“We use the trucks for other things,” DeRüetter said.
KB’s total trucks in operation include about 400 different types of truck, including commercial vans, trucks, trailers, tractors, pickup trucks, trucks and buses.
Crowley also has about 1.3 million trucks in its inventory, with about 200 different types.
But its most popular type of truck is the heavy-duty truck, which includes vans, tractours, trailers and buses, and which includes a lot less trucks.
“What is it about the KBx brand that makes it such a popular truck brand?”
“One of the reasons for that is that KBx makes a lot out of its trucks and the way it works is that you can build a whole truck, you can put together a truck and that truck is a big truck.”
The other reason, he said, is that the KBs trucks are not equipped with equipment that a typical truck needs, like air conditioning and tire pressure monitors.
The trucks are also not equipped to handle the high-volume, heavy-loading work that many truckers do on a daily basis, Raffert said.
“If you look at the KB’s fleet, we’re getting about 3,300 trucks a day,” he said.
So KB is using its trucks to operate more than the typical company that relies on trucks to haul its products.
In fact in 2016, KBs fleet was responsible for more than 60 percent of KB’s gross profit.
“When it comes time to put together the logistics package for the business, they’re not necessarily going to use trucks to do that,” said DeRueyter.
DeRuinger said that KB’s trucks have the capability to move a truckload, but they do not have the capabilities of a full load-carrying truck.
“These trucks are designed to move about 10,000-12,000 units,” DeBueyt said, adding that a full trailer or tractor can handle 12,000 truckloads a day.
KB also has a fleet of light-duty trucks that can be used as a back-up.
“All these things come together and it’s a pretty sophisticated system,” Raffer said.
But when it does come
