FORT LAUDERDALE (February 21, 2023) – Fleet Advantage, a leading innovator in Class-8 fleet data analytics, equipment financing, and life cycle cost management (LCCM) is exhibiting at the American Trucking Association’s (ATA) Technology & Maintenance Council (TMC) Annual Meeting & Transportation Technology Exhibition from February 27 to March 2 in Orlando, Fla, in booth #721. Company executives will showcase how business agility, critical data analytics and asset management resources can help fleets best understand how operational and maintenance costs are impacting their bottom line.
While the persistently changing economy continues to be a difficult climate for fleets, they also continue to navigate through ongoing maintenance and repair (M&R) challenges. A recent industry survey1 showed that roughly 90% of fleets continue to face difficulties in finding technicians, and while another 90% said they utilize spare trucks, this can add costly expenditures for fleets operating longer truck life cycles and dealing with more frequent breakdowns from M&R issues of older equipment.
Fleet Advantage executives and members of its Fleet Services team will be at the show offering a complimentary “Boots on the Ground” DC Audit, which includes solutions to both company-specific and industry-wide issues affecting daily operations. Show attendees will learn how Fleet Advantage’s Fleet Services team helps with specifications needs, fleet portfolio and operational strategies, and also demonstrate how to monitor fleet performance issues throughout the life cycle of the vehicle.
Each of these areas pertinent to M&R are also growing increasingly important especially since the survey also showed that 74% of respondents are conducting maintenance in-house, an increase from 63% from a year earlier. Company executives will also educate and discuss other findings from their annual benchmarking survey, covering a growing focus on alternate fuel trucks, and equipment procurement strategies favoring leasing.
“Amid persisting economic challenges, flexibility and agility remain important business strategies throughout 2023 to help shape corporate fleet decisions,” said Katerina Jones, Chief Marketing Officer for Fleet Advantage. Our fleet services experts look forward to discussing these latest transportation trends and scheduling complimentary fleet DC audits at TMC to help give fleets a significant competitive advantage.”
