Next IFTA/IRP Workshop: May 21 in Lethbridge

Sandy Johnson of North Star Fleet Solutions will present a workshop in Lethbridge on May 21 covering the “The Hidden Cost of Trip Permits,” with strategies to help truck fleets manage vehicle tax, fuel tax, and licensing.

Hosted by the Alberta Motor Transport Association (AMTA), the workshop is part of the AMTA’s regional safety meeting, scheduled for 6 p.m. at the Lethbridge Lodge (320 Scenic Dr. S. in Lethbridge).

Sandy’s presentation will help fleet administrators learn when to use single trip permits and when to use prorated licensing under the International Registration Plan (IRP), as well as how to recover those costs from customers.

“So many Alberta fleets make occasional trips to British Columbia or Saskatchewan but have no strategy about when to use single trip permits and when to use prorated licensing,” Sandy says. “This workshop will show fleet administrators how to reduce the risk of an audit, fines, and other penalties while increasing their fleet’s flexibility.”

The workshop is free, but AMTA charges $20 for dinner. To register, please call 780-395-6140 or email
