Written by Lucas Gulino,

From emergency vehicles, garbage trucks, and snow removal vehicles to passenger or goods transport vehicles, each profession requires adapted and different vehicles. While some equipment have advantages on trucks, others better fit on lighter vehicles. But what about Onspot? Does it fit as well on a light vehicle as trucks? Are the advantages the same? Let's compare and answer it!

On the Road Today

According to, there is an estimate of 15.5 million trucks operating in the U.S.; Of this figure, 2 million are tractor trailers. In the United States, the tractor trailer has been the go to for trucking, but the light van is slowly making it's way into the US economy. With large cargo vans being smaller than Class 8 trucks, they can get to more remote or rural areas easier, as well as in the center of city hubs where big rigs are not allowed. In the emergency industry, ambulances in particular, the medium to heavy duty pickup chassis is very popular.


Specific tasks, specific vehicles.

-Transport and logistics

The light commercial vehicle is seen as the last link in the transport / logistics chain since it will often be this vehicle that will be used to deliver to distant customers, where the trucks can’t be as maneuverable in the city or small town.

-Emergency services

When an intervention is needed in a dangerous environment or in the city center, it’s the lighter vehicles that are the easiest to drive in order to be on time and save lives.

-Municipal vehicles

Small towns and villages are often in charge of collecting waste and remove snow from their areas. Investing in trucks is often too expensive for these smaller cities who prefer to use smaller but equally useful vans.

-Yard tractors

Less known than other light vehicles, the yard tractor is also a transport solution used by many airports or ports to move planes, trailers, and containers.
