A Survivor’s Guide for Cargo Securement Inspections During International Roadcheck 2017

Tuesday, May 30, 2017 ● 2:00 PM ET

The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) International Roadcheck is set for June 6-8, and this year the emphasis is on cargo securement. By having staff attend this training webinar, fleets can reduce exposure to CSA violations and better protect their Behavior Analysis and Safety Improvement Category (BASIC) scores under the Carrier Safety Measurement System (CSMS). By learning about and adopting officially sanctioned cargo securement methodologies, participants minimize the chance of infractions, liabilities and equipment damage for themselves and their fleet.

Join us for this informative webinar and learn:

  • What inspectors will be looking for and how to correctly prepare
  • Key regulation and compliance tips that will keep your cargo secure
  • The types of cargo securement that most operators fail to do correctly
  • The top violations from the last time cargo securement was emphasized
  • What you need to do to comply with FMCSA guidelines
  • How to engage law enforcement in a non-confrontational way, while referring to written regulations

The Dollars and Sense of Outsourcing Maintenance

Wednesday, June 7, 2017 ● 11:00 AM PT/2:00 PM ET

Fleets may consider outsourcing to major leasing companies due to their technological prowess and extensive service capabilities. Some fleets are drawn to the full-service leasing and contract maintenance services offered by these firms because lessors remain ‘brand neutral,’ so they can spec or service any make or model of truck.

This Heavy Duty Trucking webinar, sponsored by Ryder, will feature several fleet managers who have opted to outsource their truck spec’ing and/or maintenance requirements to a major truck lessor. Our speakers will discuss:

  • What led them to consider outsourcing
  • Why they opted to outsource to a leasing company
  • Their experience to date in terms of cost control, quality of service, and vehicle uptime

This panel will be moderated by HDT Executive Editor David Cullen and will include a question-and-answer session open to all attendees.

Panelists: 
Darry Stuart, President/CEO, DWS Fleet Management Services 

Dan Deppeler, VP Maintenance, Paper Transport, Inc.

David Duhamel, President, N & D Transportation

  1. How to do onboarding right — and do it efficiently

  4. Keeping drivers safe for their sake and yours

Learn how a mix of technology and personal attention can help you retain drivers without breaking the bank.
