TMC Pilots Industry Data Scorecard Service

ARLINGTON, Va., March 3, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- American

Trucking Associations' Technology & Maintenance Council is piloting a

new scorecard service for capturing and reporting on key industry data

and trends. The TMC Scorecard Service, which is supported by a

relationship with Decisiv, Inc., a leading provider of Service

Relationship Management platforms for fleet maintenance, will be

introduced during TMC's 2014 Annual Meeting and Transportation

Technology Exhibition, to be held March 10-13 in Nashville, Tenn.

"We have recently piloted a new TMC Scorecard Service that will allow

participants to see how their service and maintenance data compares to

similar companies based on type and size of fleet, industry/SIC code,

cargo type, and other parameters," said Carl Kirk, vice president of

maintenance, information technology & logistics at American Trucking

Associations. "This new service is one more way TMC is providing

additional value to its membership."

"The new TMC Scorecard Service goes beyond simple yardsticks, which

show only generic industry data based on surveys," said David H.

Tobey, Ph.D. of Decisiv, Inc. "The scorecards can be used measure

specific aspects of a fleet's operation against its own performance

and that of other companies or groups, as well as industry averages.

This type of service, which has been used successfully in other

industries, will deliver value beyond typical surveys for truck fleets

in many market segments."

Once launched, fleets signing up for the subscription-based TMC

Scorecard Service will be sent questionnaires every 4-8 weeks

throughout the year.
