Fleet200 launch is a success

We held the launch of the Fleet200 yesterday in London, attended by 25 fleets, each with more than 1,000 vehicles.

Feedback from those present and the four sponsors (Arval, Energy Saving Trust, Fleet Support Group and Ford) was fantastic.

The next Fleet200 meeting will be in September, either in the Manchester or Leeds area – if you completed the Fleet200 research survey and want to find out more about the results, email me to reserve your spot (stephen.briers@bauermedia.co.uk). Further details on date and location will follow.

We’ve been working on the Fleet200 for the past six months in conjunction with our research business Sewells.

Identifying the country’s 200 biggest fleets spread across 10 industry sectors has been incredibly hard work – then getting key information from the fleets such as size, replacement cycles, funding methods, annual mileage and CO2 emissions, has been even more difficult!

But we preserved and now we’re there: the very first measurement and analysis of the UK’s biggest fleets.

We are publishing the supplement in our August 19 issue and Sewells will also be producing a report covering some of the fleet strategies now and in the future.

It’s an exciting time for Fleet News with a number of developments and new projects starting up, including a benchmarking/KPI initiative.

The Fleet200 is just the first example of the way in which we can provide valuable and information insight into how different fleets operate and how they are approaching key industry challenges.
