The National Private Truck Council (NPTC) has scheduled its annual Fleet Management Institute, featuring new and updated material, an all-star speaker line-up, and the industry's first look at the newly created Standards of Private Fleet Excellence. It is scheduled for Jan 14-18, 2006, at the Hilton Jacksonville Riverfront Hotel in Jacksonville FL.
The Institute is a concentrated, five-day immersion in the core private fleet management curriculum: Fleet Finance; Operations; Safety and Security; Human Resources; and Maintenance and Equipment.
This year's program draws from updated content that reflects the most current insights into best practices, benchmarking, and operational excellence in the private fleet community. Specific workshops will focus on strategic and tactical planning, justifying the private fleet, leadership skills, private fleet financial models, leveraging outside transportation services, recruiting and hiring skills, activity-based costing, backhaul strategies, driver leasing, emerging technologies, lease vs buy, outsourced maintenance, life cycle costing, accident investigation, a vehicle walk-around inspection, and human resource management strategies.
