The truck service world is changing - more data means better service solutions all pushing to reduce downtime. In this live Fleet Equipment Editorial Webinar, Navistar’s Joe Kory, SVP of aftersales; Chintan Sopariwala, group VP, parts; and Mark Reiter, VP of service, take the hot seats to answer the biggest service questions: from what’s being done to drastically reduce dwell time to the impact of connectivity on the service process to the need for well-trained technicians. Most importantly: they’ll answer your questions during the live event.
From automated transmissions to advanced safety systems, intelligent powertrain technology has rolled onto vocational jobsites, but how does technology tackle hyper-specific vocational tasks? What’s the best use of powertrain data in applications like construction, utility, logging and more? The Detroit powertrain team takes the hot seats to answer these questions and more during Fleet Equipment’s Editorial Webinar.
Too often, fleet managers think of sustainability in terms of heavy investment in heavy equipment. While electric vehicles and increased MPG will certainly transform operations and emissions, there’s a simpler and easier-to-implement way to increase sustainability and reduce costs.
Attend this webinar to learn:
- How stop clustering and route efficiency can reduce both time spent in traffic and time spent idling
- How implementing location technology can have wide-ranging implications, from reducing engine wear to increasing customer satisfaction
- How long-haul carriers and local couriers alike can reduce emissions and save fuel without upgrading vehicles in their fleet
The economy is, and will continue to be, dependent on the transportation of goods. With diesel engines comprising nearly all highway freight trucks and moving approximately 70 percent of the nation’s tonnage , that kind of demand requires fuel that is high-performance, consistent quality and in reliable supply. Anything less means money lost.
With an increased pressure on companies to reduce or eliminate their carbon footprint, there is one standout fuel that will keep your fleet running at top performance, with less environmental impact: Renewable Diesel.
In this webinar, we will show you how one simple fuel change—with no additional investment—can help you maintain high fuel performance, extend your engine life, and lower your carbon footprint.
Fleet Equipment Editor Jason Morgan hosts Richard Howard, SVP, On-highway Sale & Marketing, Rakesh Aneja, head of eMobility, and Dr. Andreas Juretzka, director of eMobility product development engineering, during a live online event to talk about what DTNA has learned over its extensive electric truck pilot programs which have included more than 20 fleets covering nearly 700,000 cumulative real-world miles and how to apply those lessons to fleet applications. Sign up for this live online event to have your questions answered by the DTNA eMobility team.
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? Join us for a conversation with Peter Voorhoeve, President of Volvo Trucks North America, and Magnus Koeck, vice president of strategy, marketing and brand management for Volvo Trucks North America, to tackle those topics and have a chance to get your questions answered.
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.
