TREVOSE, PA, January 16, 2012 – Luann Dunkerley, CEI manager of corporate business development for truck and service fleets, will deliver a presentation to the safety committee of the National Private Truck Council (NPTC) later this week titled, “Mitigating Truck Crash Expenses”.
Ms. Dunkerley will speak at the committee’s January 20 meeting at the Omni Jacksonville Hotel in Jacksonville Florida after attending the National Private Truck Council Institute’s board of governors meeting the previous day.
CEI provides collision management support services to heavy- and medium-duty truck fleets through a managed network of some 900 truck body repair shops across the United States and Canada. Ms. Dunkerley, a veteran of the truck fleet industry, was elected to the NPTC Institute board of governors last year.
The National Private Truck Council is the trade organization of private motor carrier fleets, which account for more than 2 million, or 82 percent of the medium- and heavy-duty trucks registered in the United Sates. Its members include a broad cross-section of America’s Fortune 500 companies, including Wal-Mart, ConAgra, Kraft, General Mills, Nestle, Pepsi, Bridgestone, Frito-Lay, and hundreds of other manufacturers, distributors, retailers and public service agencies.
The NPTC Institute sponsors the Private Fleet Management Institute, which offers a curriculum that leads to the Certified Transportation designation. It also hosts an annual national safety conference, conducts and publishes industry research, and spreads awareness of safety, regulatory compliance and general industry issues through seminars, webcasts and publications.
