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.
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?
Coupling selection and maintenance is one of the most overlooked aspects of fleet maintenance. Choosing and maintaining the correct pintle hitch is not only critical, it can help prevent unnecessary damage, downtime and accidents. Trailer separations are often caused by inferior products and ineffective maintenance techniques. Learn from the industry leader in trailer safety components and become an expert to give yourself peace of mind. Understand the difference between offshore duplications and domestic innovation, as well as proper selection and maintenance. Protect your fleet by joining us for this educational look at one of the most important issues facing truck fleets today.
As environmental sustainability initiatives continue to pop up across the country, more and more refuse applications are choosing natural gas power. And the trend is only going up.
This free 60-minute webinar will address the social and environmental benefits of renewable natural gas engine technology, the important considerations for making sure your applications last as long as you want them to, and what makes renewable natural gas a smart choice to achieve your corporate environmental sustainability objectives.
This webinar will take the Heavy Duty Fleet Manager/Technician on a journey through wheel bearing replacement. You'll learn about sourcing and selecting OE-quality, wheel end replacement parts for your application, and what separates quality from economy parts, including a focus on case-carburization. The webinar will also focus on different methods of installing and adjusting wheel end bearings, including the advantages and disadvantages of traditional installation vs wheel end spacer installation. Finally, the presenter will focus on common bearing failure modes, and explain the causes of common failures and how to get the most life out of your fleet's wheel end bearings.
During this free webinar, you'll hear how some fleets are enjoying double-digit percentage savings on fuel. Software upgrades that optimize idle RPMs, tailor the vehicle's shift points, govern speed, and manage torque settings can make a huge difference!
Technology has made keeping track of your fleet operation and the assets they carry an important business advantage. During this free webinar on Wednesday, November 14, Fleet Equipment senior editor Alex Crissey and Robert Vacheron, senior director of product management, IoT services with Sierra Wireless, will discuss how companies can take advantage of advanced tracking technology to track their fleets and high value assets, and how it can help them improve ROI, streamline efficiencies, and reduce costs.
Inefficient procedures that waste time can severely impact any organization. Join us to hear Jason Morgan from Fleet Equipment Magazine, and Ryan Driscoll from GPS Insight discuss how inefficient maintenance, vehicle utilization, and fuel usage impacts organizations, and the different types of data and technology leveraged to overcome these challenges.
It's tempting for fleets to consider extending their oil drain intervals beyond the manufacturer's recommendations, since changing the oil less frequently saves time and money. However, the consequences of choosing the wrong oil service intervals can be catastrophic and costly. You could shorten the engine's life or suffer unscheduled downtime, negating any savings in the long term. Attend this free webinar to hear a live discussion between Fleet Equipment editor Jason Morgan and Mark Betner of CITGO to learn about the best oil drain interval for your fleet.
