There are several informative sessions and panels for heavy-duty fleets at this year’s Fleet Technology Expo, in Long Beach, Calif. The conference kicks off on Monday Aug. 24 and runs through Wednesday Aug. 26 at the Long Beach Convention Center in downtown Long Beach. The event covers all segments of the fleet spectrum from small to big fleets and everything in between. For heavy-duty fleets, this year’s focus will be on making every mile and component count.

Another highlight of the conference is a panel on Tuesday called Technology in Trucking and Growing Profits. The panel will discuss technology that saves fleets time and money and improves routing, scheduling, asset tracking, customer service, hours of service, driver compensation and productivity. The panel is being moderated by Fran Flynn, vice president of sustainability, marketing and community relations at Fleet Advantage. The panel includes representatives from Con-way Truckload and Toyota Logistics Services.

“Forward thinking fleet operators are leveraging technology and data analytics to gain visibility into their total cost of ownership; said Flynn.  “We are pleased to be a part of this important conference that helps educate industry leaders on emerging technologies and smart, efficient fleet management.”
