CEI Group on Recov­ery of Acci­dent Dam­ages from Third-Party Dri­vers
The CEI Group, Inc. will focus on how truck fleets can improve their acci­dent dam­age recov­ery from third-party dri­vers at the National Pri­vate Truck Coun­cil Edu­ca­tion Man­age­ment Con­fer­ence and Exhi­bi­tion in Cincin­nati, Ohio. “We esti­mate that a sig­nif­i­cant por­tion of the $272 mil­lion in annual acci­dent dam­age expenses that the truck­ing indus­try could recover from at-fault third-party dri­vers isn’t being recov­ered,” said Luann Dunker­ley, CEI’s national man­ager of busi­ness devel­op­ment for truck and ser­vice fleets. The rea­son, she said, is that many com­pa­nies try to man­age the process inter­nally and lack the resources and expe­ri­ence nec­es­sary to max­i­mize their recov­er­ies. Learn more.

PHH Advances Green Mis­sion Dur­ing Earth Week
From reduc­ing green­house gas emis­sions in their vehi­cles to employee recy­cling ini­tia­tives, PHH’s annual Earth Week pro­gram included events such as an Adopt-A-Road Clean-up in Bal­ti­more County, a tire pres­sure check since under­in­flated tires can lower gas mileage and lead to higher car­bon emis­sions and a recy­cling drive. Addi­tional inter­nal envi­ron­men­tal pro­grams include energy use and waste reduc­tion ini­tia­tives through­out the facil­i­ties and a LEED cer­ti­fi­ca­tion and ENERGY STAR rat­ing for the PHH build­ing.  PHH recently received cer­ti­fi­ca­tion through the Lead­er­ship in Energy and Envi­ron­men­tal Design (LEED) pro­gram, the bench­mark for the design, con­struc­tion and oper­a­tion of high per­for­mance green build­ings.

GPS Insight Part­ners with Garmin on fleet 590 Con­nected Device
GPS Insight has part­nered with Garmin to pro­vide sup­port for the fleet™ 590 con­nected fleet man­age­ment device within its award-winning plat­form. The portable GPS device com­bines track­ing capa­bil­i­ties for fleet man­age­ment and the sim­plic­ity of Garmin nav­i­ga­tion. GPS Insight has been selected by Garmin to inte­grate with the fleet 590 as it becomes com­mer­cially avail­able soon. Now fleet man­agers can pur­chase one device that does both track­ing and nav­i­ga­tion instead of pur­chas­ing two sep­a­rate devices. Since the fleet 590 is portable and does not require a direct hard wiring to the vehi­cle, all pro­fes­sional instal­la­tion costs and cus­tomer down­time are elim­i­nated. Learn more.
