The National Private Truck Council is again teaming with J.J. Keller & Associates Inc. to present the second in a series of free webcasts related to performance management technology on Wednesday, June 27, from 1 to 2:30 p.m. CT. The webcast is free for all NPTC members.

“Technology is capable of addressing more aspects of the fleet operation, and as such, it is commanding an increasing share of the private fleet professional’s attention,” says Gary Petty, NPTC president and chief executive officer. “Last month, more than 100 private fleet members participated in a free webcast that addressed how fleets could build the case for technology.”

The next webcast will focus on “Implementing Technology,” which Petty says is an ideal topic for those evaluating whether or not to add onboard systems, or to upgrade or replace existing technology. “We’ll have presenters with in-depth experience with both,” he says.

In the 90-minute program, the minutes, presenters will:

  • Provide an overview of the performance management technology implementation process;
  • Discuss how to build an IT strategy and implementation team; and
  • Cover technology maintenance and upgrades.
  • The session, which Petty will moderate, will include presentations from:

  • Ron Tartt, CTP, general manager, private fleet, Bridgestone/Firestone North American Tire;
  • Sam Richardson, assistant vice president of operations, ADM Trucking;
  • Tom Moore, CTP, executive director, NPTC Institute, and vice president of public affairs, NPTC; and
  • Tom Bray, editor, Transport Management, J.J. Keller.
  • Space is limited. To register and/or obtain more information on presenters, go to Also, for those who didn’t attend the May 23 webcast, it now is available for download at the same Web address.
