With NATC’s 45 years of understanding how vehicles are used in the field, we offer a wide range of
services for fleet managers:
NATC can deploy a regimented system to assist in purchasing the correct mix of
vehicles. NATC will identify common usage patterns in your fleet, establishing
vehicle requirements for each usage pattern. Taking this information, a system
will be created to optimize vehicle selection, option content, allowable usage
and life-cycle costs. The system can be used on an ongoing basis to make the
best vehicle purchasing decisions for your organization.
NATC offers both standard and customized
training for your drivers. Classes range
from basic off-road driving to driving techniques in an emergency situation,
such as a tire blowout. NATC will evaluate the needs of your organization and
make recommendations on the mix of training required to enhance your
organization's driving skills. In addition to performing training at NATC’s
site, training can be performed at your facility. Or, NATC can help develop and
implement a tailored training system at your facility, including train the
Cost Reduction Programs:
Programs can be implemented to reduce
life-cycle costs across fleets. NATC can perform a survey of the current fleet
including fleet distribution, maintenance costs and usage requirements. Areas
can then be identified that will yield the largest potential cost reductions.
Specific investigation strategies can be outlined to create a turnkey plan to
determine the optimal changes to reduce life-cycle cost, while maintaining or
increasing safety and functional performance.
Replacement Part Certification:
For critical consumables such as
tires, NATC can construct a supplier certification and validation program to
ensure that purchased consumables meet or exceed the functional specifications,
while minimizing life-cycle costs.
Fleet requirements sometimes involve modification
of commercial vehicles. NATC can deliver a turnkey solution for vehicle
modifications, including engineering, validation, supplier source selection,
fabrication and installation.
In order to gain a better understanding of how and where your fleet is used,
NATC can deploy cost effective
data acquisition systems on your fleet. This will
allow you to collect data on critical information as a function of time. With
large, transportable memory, large amounts of data can be collected and stored
on-board before data download is required.
