    More
    Once you reach a goal, then what? If you don’t have a goal, how do you define your identity? Who created the role? Who are you becoming? Pause, Let’s take a moment and gather our thoughts. Can you answer these questions with the utmost confidence? If you are like me, after reaching a major goal you get lost in setting another goal. I enjoy the fruits of my labor but when it’s time to start down a new path I get confusion, doubt and anxiety. I get lost in the transition. I created a method and consciously implemented steps to help me find my way out the darkness. This process has renewed my hope and belief in myself allowing me to redefine who I am! I have transformed through the transition. And you can too! Let’s hit the RESET button. Let’s meet Ourselves right where we are today and Develop, Improve or Confirm who we want to be tomorrow.

    Wednesday L5-3 (Miranda 7) Top Ten Best Practices for Fleet Managers
    Samuel P Lamerato
    More
    How do you know if you are doing an excellent job as a fleet manager? Is your fleet operation competitive with outside vendors? This session will cover the Top Ten Performance Measures for Fleet Managers.

    Many public fleet managers have a tough time verbally proving to upper management, mayors, councils and commissioners that their fleet operation is a very important part of the overall municipal operation, that it is professionally managed and that it is extremely competitive. It is beneficial to report detailed fleet information with graphs including ten performance measures that explain how to arrive at this conclusion. This will prove to them you are running a competitive operation and that you are a subject matter expert and justify investment in the fleet division.

    Performance measures are an especially valuable tool for fleet managers when identifying the effectiveness, efficiency, quality, timeliness, productivity, and safety of the fleet services department.

    Wednesday L6-2 (Rio Pavilion 11) Hydrogen Production and Infrastructure for Mobility Applications
    John Chimenti
    More
    Hydrogen is a sustainable, renewable fuel source to power vehicles. Air Products is the market leader with regards to producing, distributing and providing onsite dispensing equipment in order to fuel vehicles with hydrogen. This presentation covers the hydrogen life cycle; production, distribution and the onsite equipment necessary to dispense hydrogen into vehicles. Production methods vary depending on end user requirements. The production is either centralized or onsite. The molecule is produced from varying levels of renewable feedstock per end user requests. Distribution methods vary depending on end user volume demand and distance from source. There are two methods of delivery; gaseous form or liquid form. In order to dispense H2 into a vehicle, equipment is needed onsite. The time to fill specification and maximum tank pressure design of the vehicle determine the equipment set needed at the end user’s facility. The configuration of the equipment set establishes the footprint and utility needs.

    Wednesday L6-3 (Miranda 7) Making a Business Case for Motor Pool
    Ed Smith
    More
    Your organization can save tens of thousands—even hundreds of thousands of dollars—by sharing vehicles, reducing unneeded vehicles, and automating fleet management processes. By automating things vehicle reservations, dispatching, and billing and reporting, your organization can experience incredible time savings (for fleet managers) and convenience (for users of the fleet.) But if you are just starting to plan your vehicle sharing program, how do you effectively communicate your plan to others? If you are faced with the task of “selling” the idea to upper management and other stakeholders, what evidence do you need to back up your plan and ensure successful buy-in? Nothing breaks the cadence in a major process change more than a list of unanswered questions. Get the answers you need by attending this session. Learn step by step how to make a business case for a shared vehicle initiative, and all the reasons why it makes the MOST sense under pandemic or other unforeseen circumstances. Hear real-world examples from fleet managers who have “been there and done that” successfully making a business case and launching motor pools while keeping stakeholders happy and reducing costs. Discover the pitfalls to avoid before launching your motor pool, and they might not be what you think!

Wednesday L5-3 (Miranda 7) Top Ten Best Practices for Fleet Managers
Samuel P Lamerato
More
How do you know if you are doing an excellent job as a fleet manager? Is your fleet operation competitive with outside vendors? This session will cover the Top Ten Performance Measures for Fleet Managers.

Many public fleet managers have a tough time verbally proving to upper management, mayors, councils and commissioners that their fleet operation is a very important part of the overall municipal operation, that it is professionally managed and that it is extremely competitive. It is beneficial to report detailed fleet information with graphs including ten performance measures that explain how to arrive at this conclusion. This will prove to them you are running a competitive operation and that you are a subject matter expert and justify investment in the fleet division.

Performance measures are an especially valuable tool for fleet managers when identifying the effectiveness, efficiency, quality, timeliness, productivity, and safety of the fleet services department.

Wednesday L6-2 (Rio Pavilion 11) Hydrogen Production and Infrastructure for Mobility Applications
John Chimenti
More
Hydrogen is a sustainable, renewable fuel source to power vehicles. Air Products is the market leader with regards to producing, distributing and providing onsite dispensing equipment in order to fuel vehicles with hydrogen. This presentation covers the hydrogen life cycle; production, distribution and the onsite equipment necessary to dispense hydrogen into vehicles. Production methods vary depending on end user requirements. The production is either centralized or onsite. The molecule is produced from varying levels of renewable feedstock per end user requests. Distribution methods vary depending on end user volume demand and distance from source. There are two methods of delivery; gaseous form or liquid form. In order to dispense H2 into a vehicle, equipment is needed onsite. The time to fill specification and maximum tank pressure design of the vehicle determine the equipment set needed at the end user’s facility. The configuration of the equipment set establishes the footprint and utility needs.

Wednesday L6-3 (Miranda 7) Making a Business Case for Motor Pool
Ed Smith
More
Your organization can save tens of thousands—even hundreds of thousands of dollars—by sharing vehicles, reducing unneeded vehicles, and automating fleet management processes. By automating things vehicle reservations, dispatching, and billing and reporting, your organization can experience incredible time savings (for fleet managers) and convenience (for users of the fleet.) But if you are just starting to plan your vehicle sharing program, how do you effectively communicate your plan to others? If you are faced with the task of “selling” the idea to upper management and other stakeholders, what evidence do you need to back up your plan and ensure successful buy-in? Nothing breaks the cadence in a major process change more than a list of unanswered questions. Get the answers you need by attending this session. Learn step by step how to make a business case for a shared vehicle initiative, and all the reasons why it makes the MOST sense under pandemic or other unforeseen circumstances. Hear real-world examples from fleet managers who have “been there and done that” successfully making a business case and launching motor pools while keeping stakeholders happy and reducing costs. Discover the pitfalls to avoid before launching your motor pool, and they might not be what you think!
