While ATA is taking steps at the Federal level to reduce fuel prices, this workshop is designed to educate motor carriers about new technologies and operating practices that will help them conserve diesel fuel and implement cutting edge diesel fuel purchasing strategies to reduce their fuel bill.
The one-day seminar, to be held at the Westin Arlington Gateway in Arlington, Va., will provide attendees with practical solutions from industry experts to help conserve fuel, operate more efficiently and ultimately reduce their fuel bills.
Fleet managers, fuel purchasers, economists and policy professionals will provide an overview of technologies and techniques to reduce fuel consumption, fuel purchasing strategies, methods of accurately measuring fuel economy and costs and benefits of alternative fuels.
