On Wednesday, Feb. 24 at 2 p.m. ET/11 a.m. PT, Omnitracs will be sponsoring a FREE webinar alongside Fleet Owner to discuss how fleets can gain a competitive advantage in managing operations and optimizing fleet capacity. Read on to learn about how you can benefit from attending!

Balancing fleet capacity with demand has plagued the trucking industry for decades; everyone from private and for-hire fleets, service providers and freight haulers has been affected. In the simplest of terms, it’s an ongoing balancing act between having too much or not enough equipment or assets—too much equipment goes idle and proves to be a wasted investment; on the flip side, turning down business because of lack of capacity to handle it is a wasted opportunity in lost revenue. Thankfully, an evolution of technology and advanced analytics holds the key to unlocking optimal fleet capacity, enabling fleets to do the best possible job at the lowest possible cost.

Participants in Wednesday’s webinar will hear from industry experts, including Wallace Lau, senior industry analyst, commercial vehicle research for Frost & Sullivan; Miki Gavriloski, operations manager for Sweetland Transport and president of Sweetland Logistics; and Tim Aboussleman, logistics consultant for SeQuential LLC, on the value of being an early-adopter, specifically as it relates to technology and advanced analytics. Specific topics for discussion include:

  • How innovative operational changes—including the imminent shift toward a “sharing economy” business model—have the potential to trigger a monumental shift in freight transportation and service fleets in particular
  • The significance of mobile-based freight brokering and informative-driven logistics
  • Why technology and advanced analytics are the answer to optimizing routing, scheduling and staging of equipment to improve service and responsiveness while reducing total cost
