Content rich programming unveiled for SCEF 2017

MONTREAL, QC – Publisher of Transport Routier magazine, Newcom Media Quebec, and PIT Group, an organization specializing in truck-related technological trials and fleet advisory service, have announced the program line-up for Sommet canadien sur l’entretien de flotte (SCEF) which will be held in Montreal, on Apr. 19, the day before ExpoCam’s opening.

Offering rich programming that will help fleet managers better comprehend and prepare for the challenges of the future, the 2017 SCEF will provide a workshop on connected driving. The workshop will focus on the practice of providing drivers with embedded communication systems to improve safety, and will discuss three approaches to support drivers by providing more transparency regarding their performance.

In addition, connectivity will also be addressed from a maintenance perspective, as software tools allow managers to remotely diagnose and acquire large amounts of data regarding maintenance and repairs of their equipment.

There will also be a panel discussing cooperative platooning, a new approach at generating fuel savings by configuring aerodynamic devices and distance between vehicles of the same convoy and is a concept still being experimented with. Panelists will voice their opinions about the benefits of the convoys in addition to the legal and administrative requirements that will be encountered with the introduction of such a fuel savings method.

The guest of honor will be Alexandre Taillefer who is responsible for bringing substantial changes to the Monteal taxi industry, and is looking to do the same in the transport industry. An influential personality in Quebec’s business world, Taillefer is a visionary in the field of electric transportation.

 “SCEF 2017 offers participants the most exciting and diverse programming on cutting-edge topics that will help fleet managers position themselves on up-to-date topics for the trucking industry,” says Yves Provencher, director of Performance Innovation Transport (PIT). “SCEF optimizes participant’s time by allowing them to attend a technical workshop (SCEF) as well as ExpoCam, therefore maximizing time away from the office.”

Supported by the Quebec Trucking Association, the Québec Trucking Technical Committee and the Société des superintendants de transport de Québec, SCEF 2017 will be held on Apr 19., one day ahead of the opening of the ExpoCam National Truck Show.
