Fleet Advantage, an innovator in truck fleet business analytics, equipment financing and life cycle cost management (LCCM), announced Brian Antonellis, CTP, Senior Vice President of Fleet Operations will present at the ATA's Technology & Maintenance Council's 2022 Annual Meeting & Transportation Technology Exhibition, March 7-10, in Orlando, FL

The heavy-duty truck transportation fleet industry continues to deal with a host of challenges carrying over from 2021, including driver shortages, logistical changes due to a fluctuating pandemic environment, and asset management hurdles that continue to impact organizational bottom lines.

Scheduled as Technical Session No. 3 on March 10 at 8 a.m., Antonellis will drill down into maintenance and repair (M&R) strategies that can help fleets determine when to keep M&R in-house or outsource. An expert panel will discuss all the factors that go into these M&R decisions. With the ever-growing complexity of commercial vehicle equipment and increasing struggle of attracting and retaining technicians, even fleets that have historically utilized in-house maintenance strategies are reconsidering their approach today.

Resourceful transportation fleets recognize the need for flexibility during these unprecedented times of equipment shortage and delays. In addition to Antonellis’ insight, attendees and fleet transportation executives can visit the company at booth #824 for a complimentary Comparative Cost Analysis and learn how Fleet Advantage can help their company to analyze and benchmark their fleet costs and emissions scorecard and develop a strategy to modernize their fleet.

Innovative programs, such as Fleet Advantage’s aggressive Sale-Leaseback program allows organizations to select the assets from their fleet that are older models and Fleet Advantage will purchase those assets over current Book Value and lease them back to the fleet for an interim period until they place an order and transition to new equipment when available. Utilizing a Sale-Leaseback can increase cash for immediate needs like the driver shortage or extra working capital without damaging long-term procurement goals due to build slot limitations.

“Flexibility is no longer just a consideration for transportation fleets, it’s now an extremely critical business strategy,” said Antonellis. “From maintenance and repair decisions to life cycle utilization philosophies, the leading fleets of the post-Coronavirus era will recognize the need to leverage flexibility in driving their businesses forward.”
