At Work Truck, we are committed to providing valuable insights and solutions for fleet professionals. To achieve this, we recognize the importance of connecting directly with fleets and understanding their unique challenges. Our top editorial goal is to provide relevant content addressing the real-world issues that work truck fleets face.

This board will serve for the 2024 and 2025 calendar years and provide strategic guidance to ensure our content meets the needs of the industry.

Our Editorial Advisory Board members represent diverse vocational fleets, bringing their expertise and experience to the table. With their input, we aim to deliver practical solutions and cutting-edge information that helps fleets optimize operations and stay ahead of the curve.
