Safety and Quality: How to Ensure Your Refinished Wheels Keep Your Fleet Moving Forward

Originally aired: Wednesday, November 8, 2017 ● 11:00 AM PT/2:00 PM ET

Your wheels endure a significant amount of environmental damage during their lifetime, and sourcing a wheel refinishing service is one way to extend the life of your wheels. When considering having your wheels refinished, the most important factor to contemplate is how safe the final product will be. The wheel must meet a number of technical safety specifications, and OSHA requires the wheel be refinished in an environment that meets equally as strict requirements.

View our webinar for these key takeaways to identify a superior refinished wheel:

  • How to identify an out-of-service wheel prior to sending it for refinishing
  • Quality of powder coating used in the refinishing process
  • Properly applied coating to ensure safe wheels post-refinishing
  • Wheel refinishing environment of your tire dealer

Nate Hoover, global senior product manager and new ventures leader at IMI, discusses what you should understand about your refinished wheels and what to look for in the finished product. Because the ultimate consideration of a wheel should be both an attractive and a safe wheel.

Why Fleets Should Be Looking Beyond ELD

Originally aired: Tuesday, September 12, 2017 ● 11:00 AM PT/2:00 PM ET

With the ELD Mandate deadline looming, fleets are understandably focused on ensuring they are compliant. But many fleets plan to minimally comply – investing as little as possible in ELD technology. For those fleets, ELDs will always be a cost center. By contrast, for fleets taking a long-term view, ELDs can be a profit center.

In this event, John Seidl, Transportation Consultant at Integrated Risk Solutions - a nationally known DOT/FMCSA expert - and 25-year telematics veteran Pete Allen, Executive Vice President at MiX Telematics, will describe how fleets can leverage ELDs for strategic advantage, including:

  • Improved safety

  • Improved efficiency

  • Improved security

Attendees will learn how fleets taking this approach have been able to reduce their overall costs by $50-100 per vehicle, per month, even after accounting for the cost of their ELD solutions.
