CCJ’s Spring Symposium in Asheville, N.C., will give fleet managers the opportunity to gain the upper hand in three key areas of focus – business and management, equipment and maintenance, and safety and technology.

There will be multiple sessions focusing on different aspects of each topic throughout the event, which will be held May 22-24 at the Omni Grove Park Inn in Asheville.

Topics to be covered in the business and management sessions include regulatory readiness, which covers pending rules that could be thrown out, as well as those that could survive, under the Trump administration; recruiting Millennials, which gives insight as to how to attract the next generation of drivers; limiting litigation risks, which dives into how driver assistance systems and other new technologies can help or hurt fleets in the event of an accident; and beyond compliance, which will be helpful for fleets that have yet to switch from paper to electronic logs.

Equipment and maintenance topics include best maintenance practices to lower CSA scores; remote diagnostics, which provides a cost/benefit analysis of remote diagnostics subscriptions; and maintenance outsourcing, which provides insight as to when to rely on dealerships or third-party shops to increase uptime and lower costs.

Finally, safety and technology topics covered at Symposium will be data mining for fleet maintenance, giving insights on how to use data to create more manageable workflows; driver onboarding, which dives into new technologies human resources managers can use to improve onboarding for drivers; automated driver training, covering how fleets can use technologies that give drivers real-time coaching and feedback; and switching to electronic driver vehicle inspection reports, which can help make sure drivers are completing pre- and post-trip inspections.

A full schedule of all topics that will be covered at Symposium can be found here.
