MONCTON, N.B. — The Forest Engineering Research Institute of Canada (FERIC) has teamed up with veteran equipment manager John Dolce to offer a Forestry Truck Management Workshop.
The program will be offered in four cities across Canada: Moncton, N.C., Sept. 27; Thunder Bay, Ont., Sept. 29; Edmonton, Alta., Sept. 30; and Vancouver, B.C., Oct. 1.
Dolce has racked up more than 35 years of experience with the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE). He will be discussing what makes the difference between a successful forestry trucking contractor and those who are struggling to survive.
He will cover topics including: How to perform life-cycle costing to improve your bottom line; the tools you need to make your next truck purchase with confidence; the secrets of collecting equipment and maintenance information; how improved maintenance management impacts profits; and the link between proper spec’ing and future maintenance costs.
Space is limited to 30 people per event so attendees are encouraged to sign up right away. Participants will receive a one-year membership to SAE, worksheets and calculation tools, the ability to ride and drive new equipment in Edmonton and Thunder Bay, and access to more than 60 years combined expertise in managing trucking operations. Lunch and refreshments will also be provided.
The course is recommended for small- to medium-sized forestry haul contractors as well as managers of forestry trucking operations. To sign up, visit https://www.feric.ca/secure/truck_management/index.html.
