FleetNet America — a third-party vehicle maintenance company that coordinates scheduled and nonscheduled service to truck fleets, owner-operators, original equipment truck manufacturers and aftermarket equipment providers — announced the establishment of a new and dedicated training department.
FleetNet’s technical training department will be administered by Ronnie Moss, previously a TMcare fleet manager. Moss, who joined FleetNet America in 2006 with more than 20 years experience in the maintenance field, began his career as a mechanic for Carolina Freight Carriers in the early 1980s. Previous supervisor experience includes line-haul shop manager, regional maintenance manager and fleet maintenance manager.
The responsibilities of this position will encompass elementary mechanical training up to and including the latest OEM industry updates and equipment/component configurations. The training agenda will include all Class 3-8 vehicles and will be administered to all FleetNet personnel associated with any type of equipment maintenance, scheduled and unscheduled. FleetNet says this position will enhance focus on continued mechanic training for current and future employees.
FleetNet receives nationwide service calls regarding on-the-road breakdowns at its 24/7 call center in Cherryville, N.C. FleetNet says its roadside call coordinators, who average more than 25 years of truck maintenance and repair experience, utilize a network of more than 60,000 truck repair vendors to assist in providing vehicle repair and emergency road service throughout the continental United States and Canada.
