2020 CANADIAN PRIVATE FLEET BENCHMARK STUDY for Members

 

Benchmarking yourself against other like minded and similar business operations is a key way to see how you stack up against others. It allows you to validate your performance based on comparative peer data, identify areas of improvement and opportunity, and to highlight significant trends affecting your operations.

There are many benchmarking products and services out there in the transportation industry, and many of them provide great information. One thing is missing from the Canadian Marketplace however, and that is a Benchmarking Tool that is specifically designed with the private and dedicated fleet operator in mind.  

The PMTC's 4th Annual Canadian Fleet Benchmarking Survey instrument is live as of February 3, 2020. This study is open for completion to all private and dedicated fleets which have a base of operations in Canada.

“For the last 3 years the PMTC has partnered with the National Private Truck Council and re-introduced the first Canadian specific private benchmarking survey reports since 2011” remarked PMTC President Mike Millian. “The response to these surveys and the quality of the Benchmarking report produced have been gratifying and provide a valuable tool and resource to our membership. As a result, we are once again partnering with the NPTC for the 2020 Survey.  The NPTC has been producing a private fleet benchmark survey in the USA annually since 2005, and by partnering with them again, the PMTC feels it is guaranteeing another quality and highly respected report for our members”

The PMTC has a benchmarking committee, made up of Canadian operators who review the survey annually. The committee works on shaping the survey and updating it to ensure it is reflective of the current Canadian marketplace. This input is invaluable in ensuring the survey instrument is current, relevant and valuable to Canadian fleets. This year we have also added a short section on youth employment statistics.

The Committee met again this year to review, revise and improve the survey further. The result is an even more targeted, informative and valuable industry tool. The survey is designed for the benefit of PMTC members, and its results will only be provided, at no charge, with their PMTC membership. The survey is yet another value add that will allow private fleets to benchmark their operations to other best-in class performers. A performance evaluation/ validation and opportunity identification guide based on industry standards of excellence.

The results of the benchmarking report will be released on June 12, 2020, and an overview will be provided at the PMTC’s Annual Conference on June 11, 2020.  Participants in the survey, who are PMTC members, will be invited to sit in on a special pre-release webcast to review the results in detail. In addition, those member companies that participate in the survey are welcome to request specialized, customized reports to better calibrate their operation against best-in-class performers.

This free value to our members would not be possible without the support of our new Sponsor for 2020, Ontario Truck Driving School. “We are thrilled that OTDS has choose to partner with the PMTC and its members. This sponsorship helps to cover the costs of the report, which allows the PMTC to provide this report free to its membership.”, continued Millian

“As a Registered Private Career College, who prides ourselves on maintaining the highest education standards resulting in the best "in class" entry level drivers to the Trucking Industry, we at OTDS feel sponsoring a survey that allows fleets to compare best practices and bench mark their operations to help them be best in class at what they do, was a natural fit. We are proud to help the PMTC make this resource available to its members” stated OTDS President and CEO Gus Rahim.
