If you are new to the field of student transportation, or are a student transportation director or school business official who serves as the de facto fleet manager in your organization, this webinar presented by TransPar Group of Companies is for you.
Student transportation organizations cannot function without safe, reliable fleets. However, transportation responsibilities consume so much time and attention, that fleet management responsibilities don’t always receive the attention they deserve. This webinar will review selected elements of an effective fleet management program.
Promoting the safety and reliability of your operation starts with properly managing the fleet of buses you operate. Establishing a methodology to efficiently understand and evaluate the status and performance of your fleet operation through using activity-based costing and critical KPIs, will be a key focus of this webinar.
We will also focus on the issues and trends likely to confront fleet managers in the short and medium term, to make sure you can stay on time and on budget.
