Event created to inform material handling equipment owners of the advantages of fleet management
(Greenville, N.C., USA: Jan. 11, 2007) Trucktruth.com , an online resource for lift truck manufacturers, buyers, operators and dealers, announces FleetSmart Seminar 2008. The invitation-only event, which will be held on Feb. 15, 2008 in Rosemont, Ill., was created to educate material handling equipment owners and inform them of proper fleet management practices. The seminar will focus mainly on opportunities to reduce operating expenses and improve productivity in material handling operations.
Several experts in fleet management, telemetry and RFID will lead the free seminar, which will cover the basic principles of fleet management, a review of aftermarket technologies, fleet management system reporting capabilities and technology-based products to further minimize cost of operations. Attendees will also have the opportunity to view several products with advanced technology and speak one-on-one with fleet management professionals.
Another topic that will be discussed at the seminar is the Hyster “Power by the Hour” concept. The Hyster fleet management program offers a fixed “per hour” charge for services, as opposed to a blanket cost that can lead to unnecessary maintenance and charges. This affordable program also offers Web-based access, pager technology, e-mail service reminders, online reports and other features to help effectively operate and maintain material handling equipment.
Rosemont marks the first of many FleetSmart Seminar dates stretching into 2008, with stops tentatively scheduled for Boston, Los Angeles, Baltimore and Atlanta. Specific information for each location will be announced as it becomes available. To learn more about the events, please visit trucktruth.com.
