The cargo van has long been the first choice of vocational wheels. While it seems like the cargo van has been with us forever, it’s only been 60 years. Here is its brief history, from infancy to electric!
In the early 1960's, every van in America was designed with the engine a few feet in front of the driver’s cabin. And with exception of new technologies and minor stylistic changes, today’s American vans remain largely unaltered. From their humble beginnings in the 1960s to the current developments in electric vans, cargo vans have evolved to meet the changing demands of businesses.
No other company in the world will upfit vans with custom shelves and ladder racks, wrap them with your company signage, and deliver anywhere in the lower 48 states. The cargo van has a rich history—contact Kingbee Vans today to experience what a cargo van can do for you.
Ford opened order books for the new 2023 F-Series Super Duty trucks last October, piling up 150,000 pre-orders in five weeks. Ford is committed to getting this launch right so that it doesn't hand back Super Duty profits for warranty costs and recalls.
The company implemented Zero Defect processes at the Louisville Assembly Plant and Ohio Assembly Plant that build the truck. The entirety of the Zero Defect enhancements are said to take three hours per vehicle. A contingent of 350 quality inspectors check every truck off the line, including driving every unit 25 miles to look for potential issues that escaped scrutiny.

Our fleet community is exceptionally supportive of one another. A superb example is Wheels' Carlos Oropeza’s article in AFLA’s May Fleet Insight: From Being Stuck to Unstuck: Tactics to Help You When Your Mind is Against You. We thank AFLA for giving us permission to reprint it.
Oropeza writes: "As a fleet family, let's continue to look out for one another and offer a helping hand if we see someone struggling because they are stranded on the side of the emotional road. May your journey always take you to your final destination—and remember that none of us needs to travel alone."
