The Private Fleet Assessment Program, a web-based management resource designed to help private fleets to world-class performance, has been launched by the National Private Truck Council (NPTC), Optima Associates, and Schneider National Inc.
The power of the Private Fleet Assessment Tool lies in combining the expertise, industry knowledge, and firsthand data of NPTC, Optima Associates (a national continuous improvement consulting firm that has helped private fleets enhance their operations), and Schneider National and delivering the assessment capabilities in a single web-based tool.
The Private Fleet Assessment Program evaluates private fleet performance and targets improvement opportunities for private fleets in “Eight Pillars” of scoring: safety and fleet organization, network planning, customer management, fleet management, information management, driver management, continuous improvement, and financial management.
Fleets navigating the program visit the Optima website, enter key operating information, and assess their performance against some 40 qualitative and quantitative attributes. Fleet performance is scored against world-class standards derived from hundreds of industry benchmarks and subject matter experts. Not only does the fleet receive a report comparing its performance to world-class standards, but it also receives a set of recommendations to help it improve performance.
NPTC members are invited to take the basic-level assessment free of charge. The complete assessment, however, requires payment of a fee.
