Presented by the ATA Policy & Regulatory Affairs Department
The savings from truck navigation systems can be significant, and they go straight to your bottom line. State-of-the-art navigation systems permit drivers to more easily avoid congestion and accidents, switch effortlessly to alternate routes, and even scout the road ahead for the most economical fuel options. This session will feature a panel discussion with hands-on advice about choosing a navigation system and a bottom-line perspective on the potential gains in productivity, costs, and customer satisfaction.
