The ‘Smart Trucker’ seminar series wrapped up the 2016 season by making an informative stop at the Tosca Banquet & Conference Centre in Oshawa on November 10th. The events were held in Mississauga, Grimsby, London and Kingston earlier in the year.
The seminar presented by Road Today Media Group and Outridge Enterprises offered advanced sessions on leadership, business, time management, better customer service, profit centers in trucking, new electronic log devices, mandatory elementary level training and commercial vehicle safety with a focus on prevention of wheel off incidents and winter driving.
Ontario Provincial Police Sergeant Kerry Schmidt from Highway Safety Division gave a special presentation outlining ongoing safety and enforcement initiatives. Other speakers included Mike Hahn, Vickie de Vos, Tim Gray, Ward Warkentin, Bruce Outridge and Manan Gupta.
Attended by fleet owners, drivers, owner operators and new entrants to the industry, the series was sponsored by Challenger Motor Freight, Fleet Tax Services, RS2000 Tax Consultants, Spectra Products and Ontario Truck Driving School.
The schedule for 2017 is being finalized and will be released early in the New Year.
