SEATTLE — Zonar has announced the company will hold its inaugural fleet management conference — THE ZONE 2013 — May 14-16 at the Grand Hyatt Riverwalk in San Antonio.

Zonar is a provider of fleet telematics, remote diagnostics and mobile onboard computing.

THE ZONE 2013 is lined up to be one of the most exciting fleet management conferences of the year with renowned industry speakers covering strategic transportation topics including the latest trends in fleet management, impending CSA regulations, operational safety, driver retention, fuel efficiency and management best practices, according to Zonar President and CEO Brett Brinton.

The conference will offer 72 educational breakout sessions, a transportation technology vendor fair and work one-on-one with product specialists in the interactive learning lab.

THE ZONE 2013 will provide fleet professionals an opportunity to network and gain insider industry knowledge, Brinton said, adding that a key official from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration will speak and provide valuable information on CSA regulations, implications for the industry and how it will affect current fleet operations nationwide.





Attendees will also hear from industry experts about the future of transportation technology and what fleets can do today to leverage existing systems.

“The transportation industry is rapidly changing. Staying on top of industry news, technological developments and regulations can make all the difference in successfully managing a fleet,” Brinton said. “THE ZONE is a great place for fleet professionals to expand their network, develop new skills and gain valuable knowledge from experts and peers.”

Zonar is known for its patented Electronic Vehicle Inspection Report (EVIR) system.

EVIR is the only electronically verified visual inspection system available that is compliant with the Department of Transportation, OSHA and MSHA inspection requirements, Brinton said.

“EVIR simplifies the entire vehicle inspection process improving safety, efficiency and CSA compliance scores,” he said.

Last October, Zonar introduced the 2020 portable tablet to help fleets automate common processes and maximize operational value.

The 2020 features Hours of Service, electronic vehicle inspections, two-way messaging, instant driver feedback and advanced navigation.

The 2020’s open Android platform provides fleet managers the ability to develop custom applications tailored to the unique needs of their fleet. Attendees can learn more about the 2020 tablet, but also the industry shift toward the connected vehicle and data management platforms at THE ZONE 2013.
