Statement: Bauer Media suspends Pulse Research

Bauer Media has taken the difficult decision to suspend Pulse Research by Fleet Intelligence due to the prevailing market conditions.

Fleet News meanwhile will continue to independently source research, intelligence and insight about the fleet community, including the unique data for Fleet Strategy Network, the quarterly analysis of the UK’s biggest fleet operators, and FN50, the annual listing of the UK’s largest contract hire and leasing companies.

Bauer Media retains the capability to produce bespoke automotive insight and research on a project-by-project basis. If you are interested in discussing insight reports about market conditions and business sentiments please contact Fleet News editor-in-chief Stephen Briers stephen.briers@bauermedia.co.uk in the first instance.
