complexity and rapid technological change
demands diligent attention to detail and careful
consideration. Shipper expectations, government
regulations, engineering advances, and CSA
compliance issues all require commercial vehicle fleets to be ever vigilant in order to stay safe,
efficient, and profitable. Smart fleets scrutinize
the investments they make for their operations
and vehicle maintenance programs, and many
turn to American Trucking Association's (ATA)
Technology & Maintenance Council (TMC) to help
them make smart business decisions on maintenance and specifying issues.

How to Navigate Aftertreatment System
Maintenance, Breakdowns, and Vendor
Management Best Practices

Technical Session #1
Wednesday, September 18 | 8-9:30 AM
During this session, a panel of fleet, manufacturer, and service provider representatives will
discuss best practices for leveraging vendor
relationships to minimize costs and downtime
when dealing with both local and over-the-road
vendors. Topics to be covered include: outsourced maintenance management, purchase
order process management, cost management
strategies, route optimization and service
provider relationships, third-party vendor
communication practices, enforcing fleet standards when outsourcing maintenance tasks,
how to work with independent shops or outside-of-dealer-network facilities for non-warranty
repairs, and adjusting preventive maintenance
programs to deal with aftertreatment realities.
Attend this session and learn how fleet practices and procedures - good or bad - directly
impact a company's ability to successfully manage aftertreatment-related costs. If you run diesel-powered equipment, this session is a must.

New Approaches to Preventive Maintenance,
Vehicle Triage, and Shop Design
