Work Truck Show 2016 sessions to focus on collecting, leveraging data

Registration now open for NTEA event

Several new sessions at The Work Truck Show 2016 will demonstrate how fleet managers can best utilize fleet performance and maintenance metrics. 

The Work Truck Show, produced annually by NTEA – The Association for the Work Truck Industry, will be held March 1-4 at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, IN. Educational sessions and the Green Truck Summit begin March 1 and exhibits open March 2.

“The right data can help fleet operators enhance productivity, control costs, maximize investments and stay ahead of the competition,” says Steve Carey, NTEA executive director. “But for the best results, you have to know what data is critical and how to leverage it for each fleet’s specific needs. At The Work Truck Show 2016, attendees can find answers to these types of questions and learn effective strategies for improving fleet operations.”

One of the new upcoming sessions is “Acquiring and Using Fleet Data: What You Can Learn From Your Equipment.” Presented by the Indiana Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP), this course shows how truck data loggers can be used to predict component failures and limit unexpected vehicle downtime, according to NTEA. The practice of using information to develop a proactive truck maintenance program will further be discussed at “Maintenance and Repair Shop Management.” This two-part session can help fleets with in-house maintenance operations measure service technician performance, parts management and facility usage efficiency.

At the updated “Fleet Management 101: Fundamentals of Truck Fleet Management” seminar, attendees can learn how to use information systems and analytical tools for benchmarking, according to NTEA. This session also covers fleet performance measurements and shows how to determine total cost of ownership for each vehicle.

In addition, fleet managers can attend update sessions presented by 14 work truck OEMs. At these sessions, chassis manufacturer representatives will discuss vehicle updates and answer technical questions.

Registration for The Work Truck Show 2016 is now open. Fleet managers can register for a trade show floor badge or select from packages that include educational sessions and associated events.
