7:00 AM – 8:00 AM Registration & Breakfast
8:00 AM – 8:15 AM Opening Remarks
8:15 AM – 9:00 AM Rust Never Sleeps

Corrosion has become a greater challenge than ever before, especially as pervasive de-icing compounds seep into every crevice and wick their way up wiring harnesses. This panel discussion will discuss practical strategies for fighting corrosion – from an initial pre-delivery inspection right to your equipment’s end of life.
Speakers: Paul Kirkup, National Corporate Fleet Manager, Krown Rust Control | Vakudin Lalovic, Director of Fleet Management, City of Toronto

9:00 AM – 10:00 AM Aftertreatment Treatment

The widespread introduction of Diesel Particulate Filters and Diesel Exhaust Fluid have reduced exhaust emissions, but they introduced plenty of maintenance challenges. This panel discussion will explore the role of telematics in monitoring the aftertreatment, maintenance strategies for Diesel Particulate Filters, and even maintaining the temperature and quality of your Diesel Exhaust Fluid.
Speakers: Dan Bungay, Cummins

10:00 AM – 10:15 AM Networking Break
10:15 AM – 11:15 AM Tracking (and Monitoring) Trailers

An array of new technologies can offer plenty of insights into the condition of your trailers and related components. But how do you turn the data into actionable information? And will all this technology require us to move beyond a traditional seven-pin connector, incorporating Bluetooth signals or even an entirely different connector?
Speakers: Christopher Plaat, SVP & GM, BlackBerry Radar | Mike Gomes, VP, Maintenance, Bison Transport | Steve Berube, Business Development, Geotab

11:15 AM – 12:15 PM Powerful Questions

Fleets are beginning to explore their options with electric trucks, but what does this mean for the shop and technicians? This panel discussion will explore emerging technologies, how to prepare a shop for a new energy source, the needs to develop charging infrastructure, and new Preventive Maintenance standards.
Speakers: Wayne Scott, Senior Director – Transportation, Loblaw | Yves Provencher, Senior Business Development Manager, Lion Electric | Sylvain Castonguay, Head of Commercial e-Vehicle Integration Strategy, Dana
