The trends that will impact your fleet in 2018: labor, regulations, freight forecasts and more

Commercial vehicle fleets face constantly evolving conditions — from new government regulations to technology disruptors — and your business must stay on top of developments in all these areas to thrive, or even survive.

Wards Intelligence has produced the 2018 Commercial Vehicle Report to examine how each of these issues may impact the bottom line for fleets in the months and years to come.

The report addresses the key information needs for roles throughout the fleet:

  • Fleet owners and managers
  • Logistics professionals
  • Maintenance managers
  • Sales and marketing teams
  • HR professionals
