How distributors are keeping up with fleet eCommerce needs

How heavy-duty parts distributors are keeping up with fleet eCommerce needs

eCommerce is deceptively difficult to get right. Having the right truck parts in the right locations at the right time is already a complicated waltz–making those parts easy to find at a click of a button is another story. Every year, more fleets are flocking to the web to get the parts they need, but it takes a large investment, a lot of planning and a smart back-end system to make it a snap.

On this episode of Fleet Uptime, we talk with Ken Clinchy, vice president of digital and eCommerce at Fleetpride; and Mike Harris, senior vice president of sales and operations at FleetPride, on the topic of how Fleetpride is using eCommerce to help navigate today’s supply chain and keep fleets moving.
