Fleets spend billions of dollars every year manually managing the health of tires. The negative impacts of fleet tire underinflation are felt organizationally - from the C-suite to their drivers. Asset utilization and uptime, tire and fuel expenditures, driver satisfaction and retention, maintenance efficiency, sustainability commitments, and overall fleet safety is all negatively impacted by tire underinflation. Our panel of diverse industry leaders will be moderated by Seth Clevenger, Managing Editor of Transport Topics. The panel will discuss the significant impact that tires have on fleets and how they are effectively combining automatic tire inflation with predictive and prescriptive maintenance insights to mitigate the fleet-wide risk posed by tire underinflation.
