The first annual Fleet Technology Expo (FTX) will be launched in Long Beach, California, Aug. 24-26.
The event is presented by Automotive Fleet, Green Fleet and Heavy Duty Trucking, which are published by Bobit Business Media (also the publisher of School Bus Fleet).
FTX is for all fleet types that are looking for ways to improve operational efficiencies. Educational sessions will cover topics such as how to turn telematics reports into actionable data; alternative fuels; and ways that other software, strategies and equipment can help a fleet streamline its operations.
“In a dynamic industry like fleet, it is important to stay up to date and focus on the biggest challenges that fleets are dealing with,” said Sherb Brown, vice president and group publisher at Bobit Business Media. “Right now, optimizing efficiency is one of the biggest challenges.”
FTX will focus on three specific tracks: Green Fleet, Fleet Analytics and Heavy Duty. This year’s FTX will replace the Green Fleet Conference & Expo.
“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.
The Fleet Analytics track will cover new software and innovative web-based fleet management services, including telematics, and how these services are being utilized by fleets to save money and time.
The Heavy Duty track will focus on over-the-road fleets. Panelists will discuss how powertrain updates, aerodynamics, certain maintenance practices and other tools available to heavy-duty fleets can lead to fuel efficiency.
FTX will provide an expo hall where the latest vehicles, equipment, products and technology will be on display. Attendees will also get to test out current vehicles during the ride-and-drive event.
