Consumer automotive technology continues to advance, and your professional drivers are growing accustomed to added safety and convenience features in their personal cars -- including back-up cameras, full vehicle observation packages, proximity detection, and even telematics systems. If $30,000 cars and SUVs now offer this technology, why isn’t this equipment installed in every single one of your trucks? With safety being such a critical factor to truck fleets, you should consider the benefits of this technology for your fleet.
During this free webinar, you’ll learn about the latest observation and safety technology that’s being applied to trucks and other commercial vehicles. These systems provide a better and safer driver experience, while offering a streamlined installation process to minimize downtime.
It’s important to stay up to date on ADAS service, and that means the importance of holistic diagnosis is greater than ever. Whenever a truck is in the shop, it should be scanned with a comprehensive diagnostic solution to help get ahead of issues before they become safety problems on the road. Additionally, it’s important to utilize remote diagnostics that cover all components so you know about failures in real time.
In this webinar Scott Bolt, VP of Product Management at Noregon, will cover the basics of ADAS service, the importance of holistic diagnosis, and answer audience questions.
The majority of DPF cleans are currently being performed via some version of air technology, commonly referred to as a bake & blow. Many OEMs continue to support a DPF air cleaning technology that simply does not produce satisfactory cleaning results. This position has recently changed with a major announcement from Cummins, informing customers they should avoid using air knife cleans going forward.
Fleet managers should be aware of the future financial ramifications that a first clean with an air knife can create. Though the air knife is renowned for its low cost, comprehensive testing has confirmed the bake and blow technology often leaves the filter 50% dirty, with as much as 1 pound of ash remaining.
This webinar will address the following questions:
1. What are the different DPF cleaning options?
2. Why should the DPF be a component of the fleet’s regular maintenance program?
3. What are the present and future risks with air knife cleanings?
4. What is the financial impact of air knife cleaning on your fleet?
If 2020 taught us anything, it’s was the importance of adaptability. Looking at the new year: What’s the reality of electrification? What do new engines mean to operational ROI? And what’s the market outlook for the industry this year?

Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) are shifting from standard to automatic transmissions. This webinar will explain the differences between the two as well as the benefits of switching, including improved fuel economy and annual savings.
Presenter Jim Salmon, Technical Manager at D-A Lubricant Company, Inc., will discuss the following points:
• Reduced maintenance compared to manual transmissions
• Lower fuel costs from improved fuel efficiency
• Oil drain interval extensions
By the end of this webinar, you’ll feel more confident about the automatic transmissions and oils you use, as well as the future of over-the-road fleets.
Fleets with active tire management practices report fewer tire-related roadside service calls, more successful retread programs, and overall lower cost-per-mile for tires. A well-managed program can save a fleet in many ways, including more profit, fewer CSA violations, less downtime, and fewer unplanned expenses.
There are many factors to consider when developing your fleet process. Have you identified your objectives and your key performance metrics? Have you considered engaging a strategic partner as opposed to managing all aspects in-house? Do you know what success looks like for your fleet? More importantly, do you have a roadmap to get you there?
