Financial Pressures

All of us, I'm sure are facing more and more financial pressures.  Are there any fresh ideas that people are exploring to reduce fleet cost?  Service level cuts, productivity enhancements through shift work, reduction in equipment specs, etc?

We are looking at everything! We are standardizing all the digger trucks, and bucket trucks. I order steel stock bins, on buckets, 33 GVWR, I buy stock engines, only thing I add is air ride seats, power windows, radio, auto trans, backup camera and air. All the trucks are alike no custom builds for the Linemen.
