Always looking to provide additional value to our fleet executives, this informative one-hour session will bring industry leaders from the fleet and supplier sides together to discuss the hottest fleet topic.
Platooning is a decades-old idea but huge advances in technology over the last several years mean that it’s actually now feasible. Many on-the-road trials across this continent, and even more in Europe, have led us to the brink of common acceptance as the trucking industry searches for improvements in both fuel economy and emissions.
But is it really practical? Just how much can be gained? What are the downsides? How can it be implemented? What have the tests shown so far? These questions and more will be answered at the Fleet Forum.
A presentation by a technology leader will be followed by an open discussion including Robert Braswell, Technology & Maintenance Council (TMC), Yves Provencher, PIT Group / FPInnovations, Wayne Scott, Loblaw Companies and moderated by Today’s Trucking editorial chief Rolf Lockwood. Come armed with your questions and comments because this will be an open discussion with audience involvement.
