The commercial cartage, custom delivery and over-the-road segments of the automotive fleet industry are well-served by numerous dedicated trade associations and other resources. The vast majority of fleets operating today are small- to medium-sized vocational fleets. Their primary business is to manage vehicles that support their operations. The vocational fleet industry is inherently diverse and segmented. As a result, vocational fleet owners and operators have few outside resources to assist and guide them in the overall management of their fleet. The NTEA supports commercial truck fleets with the resources and information they need.
