American Trucking Associations’ Technology & Maintenance Council is piloting a new scorecard service for capturing and reporting on key industry data and trends.
The TMC Scorecard Service, which is supported by a relationship with Decisiv, Inc., will be introduced during TMC’s 2014 annual meeting next week (March 10-13) in Nashville.
“We have recently piloted a new TMC Scorecard Service that will allow participants to see how their service and maintenance data compares to similar companies based on type and size of fleet, industry/SIC code, cargo type, and other parameters,” says Carl Kirk, vice president of maintenance, information technology & logistics at American Trucking Associations. “This new service is one more way TMC is providing additional value to its membership.”
“The new TMC Scorecard Service goes beyond simple yardsticks, which show only generic industry data based on surveys,” says David H. Tobey, Ph.D. of Decisiv, Inc. “The scorecards can be used measure specific aspects of a fleet’s operation against its own performance and that of other companies or groups, as well as industry averages. This type of service, which has been used successfully in other industries, will deliver value beyond typical surveys for truck fleets in many market segments.”
Once launched, fleets signing up for the subscription-based TMC Scorecard Service will be sent questionnaires every 4-8 weeks throughout the year, TMC says.
