The Institute for Truck Transportation Management will be hosting three seminars with the theme, "Strategies to Improve the Private Fleet's Position."
To be held May 15, Minneapolis; Sept. 11, Greensboro, NC; and Oct. 2, in Nashville, the one-day sessions will examine creative opportunities for increasing fleet utilization without increasing costs, and how a fleet manager can add value, strengthen relationships within the organization, and gain respect and confidence from senior management.
The seminars are also designed to offer a better understanding of how to determine true costs, benchmark your fleet, boost fleet utilization and analyze outsourcing challenges. Among the areas covered will be activity-based costing, revenue enhancement opportunities, and in-depth case studies analyses involving benchmarking and communicating fleet value to upper management. The seminars also will look at a variety of backhaul strategies, creative cost saving techniques, and how to deal with outsourcing challenges.
