FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. (Sept. 11, 2017) — NTEA – The Association for the Work Truck Industry introduces the Fleet Technical Congress to be held in conjunction with The Work Truck Show 2018 and Green Truck Summit in Indianapolis, Indiana, next March. At Fleet Technical Congress, fleet managers can explore the latest technology solutions while gaining management insights from leaders of some of the country’s biggest fleets and suppliers.
Fleet Technical Congress is designed for both established fleet managers and those who are moving into more senior fleet management roles. It will provide the tools, techniques and thinking they need to succeed. General session topics will include discussions on the future of commercial vehicles; reactive vs. predictive maintenance; the impact of smart, connected vehicles; how to integrate multiple data streams to enhance decision-making; benefits and risks associated with vehicle data; and techniques for improving equipment replacement strategies.

At the same time, we’re seeing a significant refreshing of leadership in professional fleet management nationwide. As a result, we believe this is an opportune time to capture the lessons learned by some of our industry’s top fleet professionals who will share their experience and vision as a foundation for the next generation of leaders.”....Read more
