Fleet Management

All-New Fleet Technology Expo Set for August

February 02, 2015

Automotive Fleet, Green Fleet and Heavy Duty Trucking magazines are introducing the first Fleet Technology Expo in Long Beach, California, Aug. 24-26.

FTX is for all fleet types that are looking for ways to improve operational efficiencies. Educational sessions will cover topics ranging from how to turn telematics reports into actionable data to alternative-fuel topics, and ways other software, strategies and equipment can help a fleet streamline operations.

“It is important to stay up to date and focus on the biggest challenges that fleets are dealing with. Right now, optimizing efficiency is one of the biggest challenges,” said Sherb Brown, vice president and group publisher for the magazines' publisher, Bobit Business Media.

FTX will focus on three specific tracks: Green Fleet, Fleet Analytics and Heavy Duty. This year’s FTX replaces the Green Fleet Conference & Expo traditionally held in October.

“Alternative-fuel adoption is important, but it is only one piece to the puzzle when it comes to making your fleet more efficient,” Brown said.

There will still be alternative fuels content in the Green Fleet track, which focuses on challenges and success stories in using and funding natural gas, propane, electric and other fuel technologies.

The new Fleet Analytics track will cover new software and web-based fleet management services, including telematics and how fleets are using these services to save money and time.

The Heavy Duty track is aimed at on-highway Class 6-8 fleets. Panelists will discuss how powertrain updates, aerodynamics, maintenance practices, driver training and other tools available to heavy-duty fleets can lead to fuel and fleet efficiency.

FTX will provide an expo hall where all the latest vehicles, equipment, products and technology will be on display. Attendees will also get to test out some of the most current vehicles during the Ride and Drive Event.
