TORONTO, Ont. — Motortruck Fleet Executive has published a groundbreaking new benchmarking study for the Canadian private fleet sector.

The Canadian Private Fleet Practices Benchmark Study is the first of its kind in Canada. It surveyed private fleet executives on 110 questions across 13 business categories, allowing private fleet managers to compare their business practices to similar operations.

The study was conducted in partnership with the Private Motor Truck Council of Canada, with more than 180 fleet managers responding to the survey.

Business categories include: key challenges facing the operation; details of the operation; composition of the fleet; operational costs; operating policies; fuel costs and use of alternative fuels; new technologies; driver compensation; driver benefits; driver training; hiring practices; safety issues; and operations staff and compensation.

“This is an excellent opportunity for fleet managers to access key operational data from both similar and best practice fleets,” said Rob Wilkins, publisher of Motortruck Fleet Executive. “The information gathered was determined with the help of some of Canada’s top operational managers making it a targeted useful resource for improving fleet operations.”
