Maximizing Profitability Without Minimizing Your Client Relationships

Thursday, May 03, 2018 - 2:00pm

Fluctuating freight rates are part of the definition of a competitive market, yet rate plunges and spikes cause damage to both sides of the transportation industry.

Gaining a precise understanding of the cost of hauling and the value of revenue — by day and by lane — allows carrier executives to maximize equipment utilization and profitability while keeping freight rates within competitive boundaries.

Talking to shippers and understanding what is necessary for them can help build lane density and balance, operating factors that can do more to swell the bottom line than high rates alone.

Data-Driven Maintenance: Moving from Proactive to Predictive

Thursday, March 01, 2018 - 1:30pm

Maintenance shops, regardless of their size or IT structure hold a wealth of information. Capitalizing on that data through advanced analysis and turning information into preventative and predictive action is a key and often misunderstood process. Monitoring is not enough.

Hear from TMW Systems Sr. Product Manager, Asset Maintenance Solutions, Greg Peck and Royal Trucking, Chief Information Officer, Kent Parkinson for a deep dive into ways your fleet can use data to predict failures before they sideline your fleet, and identify and prevent chronic problems and underperforming resources before they drag down your operation.

Predictive Maintenance 201: Beyond Prevention

Wednesday, February 28, 2018 - 1:30pm

Preventive maintenance rules of thumb and best practices have been used in fleet shops for decades. Increasingly modern, yet still basic solutions utilize data to focus those general guidelines and turn them into maintenance plans geared for basic equipment monitoring.

Fast forward to the work of today’s proactive and future-focused fleets. Advancing beyond basics, predictive maintenance systems not only monitor, but analyze data from repair orders, fluid analysis, consumption rates, truck telematics, fault codes and other sources to provide predictive information on near-term failures or fault conditions to maintenance directors and their technicians.

Capitalizing on volumes of data, predictive maintenance algorithms keep tractors and trailers rolling smoothly between regularly scheduled shop visits and avoid pending part and system failures. Fewer breakdowns mean higher vehicle uptime, lower maintenance costs and more predictable scheduling and inventories.
