Fleet Advantage, a leading innovator in specialty financing, fleet data analytics, fleet management services, and life cycle cost management, announced today it is exhibiting at the American Trucking Association’s (ATA) Technology & Maintenance Council (TMC) Annual Meeting & Transportation Technology Exhibition from March 4-7 in New Orleans in booth #4012. Company executives will help attendees plan for their CARB pre-buy strategies through a special CARB Pre-Buy Allocation Consultation, along with discussions on truck specifications, fleet portfolio, and operational initiatives.

The TMC Annual Meeting is the most important event of the year for fleet technology and maintenance management professionals. The event attracts over 5,000 leaders in commercial vehicle transportation and is North America’s premier technical conference for best practices in maintenance and technology in trucking.

Navigating The CARB Prebuy

This year’s TMC show is more important than ever, as fleet executives continue to build for the upcoming CARB pre-buy. However, many of these executives are pondering the right strategy to minimize potentially large investments, with the mandates impacting their truck procurement cycles over the next few years.

According to ACT Research, their analysts believe the new standards will result in the largest truck prebuy ever leading up to 2027, beginning in 2025 into 2026, with the cost of diesel trucks increasing between $25,000 and $30,000 more per unit. Fleet Advantage executives will provide a CARB Pre-Buy Allocation Consultation to help ensure fleets take a proactive, data-driven approach to their procurement cycles by planning over these next three years to achieve a lower total cost of ownership, while lowering their emissions.

Navigating the CARB prebuy is just one of many asset management initiatives executives planning for today. March is also nationally recognized as Asset Management Awareness Month, which urges businesses and organizations to learn how improved asset management practices can contribute to the overall mission and revenue goals of their organization. In acknowledging this importance, Fleet Advantage experts will also be on hand to help develop a holistic, multi-year approach that leverages data and analytics to build a fleet modernization plan considering all of today’s economics.

“Achieving organization success requires a strategic combination of foresight and planning from trusted partners,” said Brian Antonellis, CTP, Senior Vice President of Fleet Operations for Fleet Advantage. “Right now, this planning must embrace and solve the challenges posed by the pending CARB pre-buy. Visit us at TMC so our team of dedicated experts can proactively offer the right asset management and procurement plan that navigates CARB and builds more agility and flexibility to help fleets remain competitive over the next few years and beyond.”
