U.S. private trucking association offers fleet economics seminar

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (July 7, 1999) — It’s never been more difficult to get a handle on fleet costs. Top management wants the fleet operating at a price better than outside providers. This isn’t easy to do when fleet managers are buffeted by the winds of change in enterprise wide logistics systems, booming electronic commerce, stricter safety regulation and human resources challenges.

Get the answers at the Fleet Economics Seminar sponsored by the Private Fleet Management Institute, the nonprofit education and research affiliate of the National Private Truck Council.

Seminars will be held Sept. 27 in Chicago, Nov. 5 in Dallas, and March 27, 2000, in Charlotte, N.C. Attendees also will receive PFMI’s 150-page textbook, “Understanding Fleet Economics.”

The seminars address the need for today’s fleet managers to fully understand the economics of the entire delivery system. These include driver wages, vehicle and equipment costs as well as the costs associated with high technology and customer service initiatives.

The cost of the seminar, including breakfast and luncheon and all materials, is $259 (US) ($129 for NPTC members).
