Truck bodies manufactured by BrandFX are used by Natural Gas utility providers, who offer a range of services to their residential and business customers. Natural gas service technicians have several additional responsibilities beyond serving customers. They must also maintain and support existing infrastructure, while adjusting to daily changes and occasional emergencies. Natural gas often runs from a main into a home or business through a service line. Natural gas utility providers are normally responsible for maintaining and operating the network of gas pipelines and facilities, right up to where the residential or commercial gas meter is located. All equipment and gas supply lines that are beyond the point of the meter are the responsibility of the customer, whether they are a business or a residence.

Truck bodies for gas industry fleets designed and built by BrandFX are more lightweight than traditional materials, including steel and aluminum. Fleet managers note that lighter vehicles consume less fuel, and this fact has a major impact on the bottom line. Significantly reduced fuel costs save fleets money. EPA guidance estimates that, on average, a weight reduction of 100 lbs reduces a vehicle’s fuel consumption by 2%. Across a fleet of natural gas industry work trucks, lightweighting can make an important sustainability difference. As national and regional natural gas service fleets move toward lighter weight truck bodies, they will be able to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by thousands of tons per year. Lightweight durability is a true sustainability advantage of BrandFX truck bodies.
“BrandFX truck bodies simply last longer. There are bodies we installed in 1984 that are still in regular service today. And they look great.” – Gary Heisterkamp
Truck bodies and WorkPod™ composite inserts built by BrandFX are both lighter and more durable than truck equipment made from traditional materials like aluminum and steel. This is an important fact for service fleet organizations to consider. When a natural gas service fleet works to make its truck equipment lighter, it immediately experiences the advantages of fuel cost savings, shorter stopping distances and increased payload capacities. By choosing lightweight truck bodies, fleets extend the useful lives of their chassis, which drives down the overall average life cycle cost of the equipment. BrandFX simply lasts longer. The body, chassis and any additional mounted equipment experience the benefit of lightweighting. Incremental improvements in equipment weight can have a profound effect on the overall cost of operating a business. These savings add to the bottom line, whether they’re for a fleet of natural gas industry service trucks or for a single work truck owned by an independent utility service contractor.
Truck bodies manufactured by BrandFX support American natural gas fleets. The United States currently has more than 270,000 miles of natural gas pipeline that provides consumers and businesses with direct access to natural gas. Across any natural gas pipeline, there is a re-pressuring station every 50-60 miles. Transmission and distribution of natural gas is enabled through main lines, which serve communities, and service lines, which service individual addresses. In case of emergencies, distribution mains are interconnected in multiple grid patterns with strategically located shut-off valves. These valves minimize the need for customer disruption to service during serious emergencies and regular maintenance operations. Natural gas providers use a sophisticated set of computer programs, dashboards, algorithms, artificial intelligence (A.I.) and machine learning to evaluate network delivery capacity and to ensure that gas is delivered safely and consistently. Redundant systems work to enable the safest and most efficient delivery system possible.
