Our Crumbling Infrastructure
America’s infrastructure is aging and there is no agreement on how to fund roads and bridges. There is also no agreement on how to establish electric charging or hydrogen fueling stations along main highways. Congress, the White House and states face an array of choices: the gas tax, a tax on miles traveled, and truck-specific tolls. None of these are popular. Meanwhile, fleets pay when they have to route past broken bridges, such as the Hernando De Soto bridge near Memphis. So what solutions are most feasible?
Jim Stinson, Senior Report, Transport Dive

Leveraging Today’s Safety Systems
Safety systems such as lane departure warning, high-tech cameras, predictive cruise control, and collision avoidance are preventing and reducing the severity of collisions more than ever before. In this session, our top suppliers will discuss the advancement of safety technology in heavy-duty commercial vehicles and how you can anticipate the use of future safety systems.

Improvise, Adapt and Overcome
In March, for the most part, all “non-essential” businesses were told to shut their doors and send their employees home. So many people were told to file for unemployment and wait until their businesses reopened. Many businesses scuttled their businesses while others tried to keep their employees even though they had no revenue. Some figured out a way. Please join us for a panel discussion on what some of the Corcentric customers did to overcome these obstacles and prepared for the next calamity.

11:45 – 1:00PM

Lunch / Roundtable Discussion

1:00AM – 2:00PM

Vehicle Electrification
The trucking industry has begun a transition to electric vehicles and it will include a lot of changes. The number of truck OEM’s has nearly doubled over the past 5 years. New participants to your work will include your utility company, a charging station supplier and a software company to manage the whole situation. NACFE can help you learn about these changes in several ways, including a demonstration of electric trucks called “Run on Less – Electric”.
Dave Schaller, NACAFE,  Industry Engagement Director

2:00AM – 2:45PM

Capitol Equipment
Heavy duty and trailer manufacturing slots are all allocated for 2021, and first quarter 2022 slots are all allocated as well.  Values for used commercial trucks and construction equipment continue to increase and command higher selling prices compared to last year, amid lack of inventory. The current supply and demand game is real, as new vehicle production will continue to be challenged with material shortages.  What does this mean for your business needs?  Sean will help unravel what this could mean for your company in the long and short term.
Sean Story, Corcentric Vice President of Capital Equipment
