With so many recognizable corporations and brands that use vehicles to transport their goods across America, just who among them has the largest fleet of trucks? In 2015, Transport Topics complied a list of the largest private fleets operating in the United States. The list is peppered with popular consumer brands as well as diversified multinational corporations that may be less familiar to individuals. Take a look at the largest vehicle fleets in America and learn more about the many vehicles these corporations use:
1. PepsiCo: In 2015, PepsiCo topped Transport Topics’ list of largest fleets for the second year in a row. The soda maker deployed more than 8,000 tractors, nearly 12,000 trailers and nearly 15,000 straight trucks in operating the largest truck fleet in the world.
2. Sysco: Sysco distributes food products to a number of different commercial operations including restaurants, schools, hotels, hospitals and more. In 2015, it operated nearly 8,000 tractors, more than 9,000 trailers, more than 1,000 straight rucks and a total of 388 pickups and cargo vans.
3. Walmart: Walmart overtook Coca-Cola for third place on Transport Topics’ list in 2015, operating more than 6,000 trailers and more than 61,000 trailers in addition to 106 straight trucks.
