New Design with Your Success in Mind

When you work in fleet operations in the utility industry, you’re under intense pressure to juggle multiple roles – and to do them all well. You’re expected to be an engineer (to spec vehicles for maximum uptime and efficiency), a chief negotiator (to drive the lowest acquisition costs), a financial analyst (to squeeze more profit from operations), an organizational psychologist (to boost driver morale and productivity) and a risk manager (to improve safety and minimize exposure).

Yet there is only so much time in the day. When your attention is spread across various responsibilities, where do you find the time to gather the information you need to grow and excel in your work?

That’s what we seek to help you with through our redesign of Utility Fleet Professional magazine.

We understand that your time is precious and have structured the magazine accordingly, with shorter reads, insightful infographics and easier navigation. You’ll notice that we have added new departments, offering you more utility fleet news, advice and best practices in a more digestible format, so you can immediately apply all that you have learned.

In a sense, think of us at UFP as your research and education team. We save you time by pulling together the fleet management information and strategies you need to make your job more productive and less stressful.

So, what are the most pressing challenges impacting you and your fleet? Chances are, there are many others in the utility fleet community who are dealing with the same issues, and who could also benefit by learning practical tips and best practices from peers and industry experts. I encourage you to share your thoughts, challenges and concerns with me at [email protected]. The UFP staff strive to make your job easier by reaching out to the right experts, uncovering the best solutions and providing you with the most relevant, actionable information.

As your new editor of UFP, I am excited about where the magazine is headed and the opportunity to be a part of an amazing team. My passion is to ensure our content – both in print and online at – becomes indispensable to your success.
