MT LAUREL, NJ – ARI, Automotive Resources International held its inaugural Utility Fleet Forum from February 22 through 24. At its Mount Laurel, NJ headquarters, ARI hosted utility fleet managers and decision makers from across the United States. ARI’s technical experts in the areas of utility fleet management, strategic consulting, supply chain management, and mobile technology led discussions on a variety of issues prioritized by the attendees. 

Guest speakers from ARI business partners discussed regulatory compliance, and the fleet manager of a nationally-recognized investor-owned utility shared his success story about combining three disparate fleet management systems into one comprehensive and standardized system.

When interviewed, Bill Bonham of the Tennessee Valley Authority said, “The forum really exceeded my expectations.  I thought the group was perfect. The topics were very pertinent and everyone was very open. It was a great experience.”   

“This forum gave utility fleet managers from across the U.S. an opportunity to talk about the unique issues they face daily,” says ARI’s Manager of Utility Business Development, Rob Hoysgaard. “Attendees were able to engage in open discussions with their peers, share their successes and come away with new ideas on how to meet utility specific fleet challenges.”
