Fleet management will be a key to success for construction equipment-owning organizations as the economy rebounds. Projects will come, but the competition will continue. The fleet’s ability to field the most cost-effective and efficient machinery directly affects bid accuracy, job profitability and, ultimately, corporate performance.

Smart organizations have brought the equipment-asset manager into the conversation, making room for his input and insight in corporate decisions. But many others do not.

What could help an equipment manager make the case to his superiors? How about a major award acknowledging your fleet’s success? The Fleet Masters Award is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, and it’s time to enter your fleet.

Fleet Masters is cosponsored by Construction Equipmentand the Association of Equipment Management Professionals, and recognizes excellence in equipment management.

Fourteen organizations have been honored over the years; two have won twice. Last year, we acknowledged the United States Air Force-Europe and Waste Management.

Winning the Award means your fleet management skills are at the pinnacle of our industry and your leadership is an example of excellence in this increasingly important position. In the last decade, we’ve seen the equipment manager position gain in stature and expertise. Recognizing the industry’s Fleet Masters continues to further this vital cause.

The program is open to all fleets, and the deadline for entries is January 13, 2013. Follow this link to the application form.

The awards will be presented at the AEMP Annual Meeting, March 17-19, 2013, in Jacksonville, Fla.
