SAN ANTONIO — Zonar will hold its inaugural annual conference here this spring, company officials announced.
The provider of fleet telematics, remote diagnostics and mobile onboard computing will launch THE ZONE 2013 from May 14 to 16 at San Antonio’s Grand Hyatt Riverwalk.
Officials said that the fleet management conference will offer renowned industry speakers covering strategic transportation topics, including the latest trends in fleet management, impending CSA (Compliance, Safety, Accountability) regulations, operational safety, driver retention, fuel efficiency and management best practices.
