Webinar to Explore How Fleets Can Keep Maintenance Costs in Check
Heavy Duty Trucking magazine is hosting an upcoming free webinar about how fleets can stay on top of and even lower their maintenance costs.
Maintenance costs can add significantly to a fleet’s cost of ownership, especially today with so many chronic repair problems stemming from unreliable technology. If you can’t make the problems go away, you can often minimize their impact by staying ahead of them.
The webinar, “Measure Your Maintenance Spend to Find More Savings,” will take place on Aug. 29, 2019, at 2 p.m. EDT. HDT Equipment Editor Jim Park will lead a discussion between maintenance experts Darry W. Stuart and Greg Hart to explore how fleets can lower their maintenance costs.
Stuart is the founder and president of DWS Fleet Managment services, which provides fleet managment services and expertise to fleets. He has truck maintenance background and was an active member of the American Trucking Association’s Technology & Maintenance Council, where he served as general chairman from 2007-08.
Hart is the owner of Hart & Hart Consulting, working with fleets to restructure maintenance processes and procedures, focusing on maintenance best practices, shop safety, parts room inventories, tire programs, equipment specs and costs.
The webinar will discuss how a one-size-fits-all spec is rarely the right spec for your operation and why the lowest-priced components usually aren’t your best option. It will also cover what to repair and what to replace when considering labor-intensive repairs and maintenance.

FLEET MANAGEMENT AUDIT
Fleet management is the use of a set of vehicles in order to provide services to a third-party, or to perform a task for our organization, in the most efficient and productive manner with a determined level of service and cost.
Fleet management activities are shown in the following graph 1:
Graph 1: fleet management activities
The proposal audit analyses and assesses all fleet management activities shown in the graph 1, and its main goals are:
- Know the overall status of the fleet management activities
- Provide the analysis, the assessment, the advice, the suggestions and the actions to take in order to cut costs and increase the efficiency and efficacy of the fleet management activities
With the information obtained, we’ll elaborate a report that holds the overall status of the fleet management as well as the suggestions, recommendations and the measures to take in order to cut costs and optimize the fleet management activities.
