Trincon Group, a national transportation industry advisory and technology firm, has announced a series of new programs designed to help address the real business issues facing trucking companies today.

The series, which will begin in January and run through July, will include interactive webinars focusing on actions fleet executives and owners can take right now to improve business results.

From January through July of this year, the program will highlight such issues as:

  • Overcoming Technology Overload
  • Managing Costs
  • Effective Pricing
  • Improving Asset Utilization
  • Driver Development and Retention
  • Improving Productivity Under HOS Rules
  • Optimizing Organizational Performance
  • Building Customer Relationships and Gaining Competitive Advantage
  • Creating a Successful Business Strategy

Recently the American Transportation Research Institute released their 2013 report on “Critical Issues in the Trucking Industry.” It pointed to such broad industry issues as Hours of Service, CSA, the driver shortage, and the economy, and recommended strategies that industry organizations should take to combat these issues.

According to Duff Swain, President of Trincon Group, “While these issues [defined by the ATRI] certainly impact the industry as a whole, and their recommended actions are appropriate, there are a number of things individual company leaders can and should do right now that will provide immediate benefit and long-term business results regardless of the business climate or regulatory environment.

“This program is aimed at fleet owners and executive management, and will include a series of white papers and live webinars based on our over 30 years of experience in advising and working with trucking firms. It will focus on tactics and solutions that can be employed today to address those “real world” issues business leaders face every day.”

The program will kick off January 23 with a special webinar in Overcoming Technology Overload – Tactics for making sure you’re getting the return you want from your investment.
