Share Article

Telematics Update's Fleet & Asset Management USA 2011 (Nov 16-17, Atlanta, GA) marks a critical point in the commercial telematics industry. Despite widespread concerns over uncertainty in the US economy, American Trucking Association (ATA) Chief Economist, Bob Costello, predicts that the fleet industry should continue to outperform the wider US economy stating that “trucking’s fundamentals still remain good, and the best times are still ahead of us in trucking”.

“The event was extremely valuable - both inside during
the presentation and with the external networking
opportunities to make contacts.” Ford

In this delicately balanced marketplace Costello warns that growth is far from guaranteed citing that “higher equipment replacement costs, increased maintenance costs driven by an aging U.S. truck fleet, and higher wages” as well as fundamental operating costs must be carefully controlled.

With efficiency so critical it is imperative that fleet managers embrace the telematics enabled solutions that are set to allow them to measure and control fleet operating costs.

Fleet & Asset Management USA 2011, Conference & Expo, November 16-17, Hotel Meliá, Atlanta, GA, USA, will bring together Auto OEMs, device manufacturers, wireless carriers, telematics service providers, insurers and investors to create a blueprint for developing integrated telematics solutions that enhance fleet efficiency.
