Marc Thibeau, Senior VP of Sales, Fleet Management Solutions at Ryder, who is responsible for the growth and retention of Ryder's customer base and oversees the execution of business development initiatives.

"For most companies, maintenance is the third-most expensive aspect of operating a fleet, after fuel and asset acquisition," Riemer said. "Analyzing a broad set of metrics reveals your total cost of ownership (TCO) and the real enterprise-wide cost of maintenance and repair processes. This informative live discussion will provide valuable insights into how maintenance costs affect every area of a fleet, whether in hard dollars, soft costs or operational impacts, and how to use TCO analysis to improve fleet efficiency and profitability."
