Peterbilt Motor Co. said it plans to offer a free educational seminar on vehicle spec'ing procedures for medium-duty truck owners and operators at the National Truck Equipment Association's (NTEA) annual convention next month.

Peterbilt said spec'ing for top performance, optimizing body installation, realizing the benefits of preventive maintenance and maximizing the lifetime value of vehicles will be among the topics presented at its March 5 seminar during the Work Truck Show in Orlando.

"For many attendees of the show, fleet management is secondary to managing their primary business," said Dan Sobic, assistant gm for Peterbilt. "Profitably running and maintaining their fleet is essential to their overall success, but not always the primary focus, as it would be with many over-the-road fleet companies."
