Al Barner, CTP, vice president of business development at Fleet Advantage, will be presenting at the CCJ Solutions Summit at the Wild Horse Pass in Chandler, AZ. Barner will lead a session titled “Equipment Spec’ing with Drivers in Mind,” which will take place from 4 p.m. to 4:45 p.m. MST on Dec. 1.
Barner’s session will cover the importance of including drivers in the conversation around spec’ing and safety initiatives while acknowledging their input for stronger retention strategies. As more fleets replace aging trucks with newer, safer equipment on the roads, companies will quickly realize they will keep their drivers and others on the road safer, retain their drivers at a higher rate and also enjoy substantial savings in reduced accident and litigation costs as well as lower maintenance and repair expenditures.
Barner’s session will also cover important aspects of having the right asset management and planning strategy for truck replacement. He will discuss how fleets should have a 12- to 24-month or even a 36-month procurement strategy in place, as well as the importance of reviewing driver feedback when reviewing specs on any new trucks in consideration. Session attendees will learn about solutions that ensure drivers remain safe, productive and compliant and discover what features are important to a driver’s overall comfort and convenience while working on the road.
