Euro outsourced fleet set to top six million

EUROPE’S market for outsourced fleet management services could reach 6.67 million vehicles by 2010, an industry expert is expected to reveal at a major conference next month.

The findings will be part of an expert overview of the fleet market provided for delegates at the Fleet News Industry Conference on November 1.

Jugo Strojavov, fleet analyst, Datamonitor, will provide further details of the predicted growth and examine the future development of fleet in the UK, leasing, rental, fast-fits and other key market areas.

A key factor would be identifying how buyer demands will change in the future as the market develops.

The event will also hear from Max Warburton, head of global automotive research at UBS Investment Bank, who provides analysis and investment advice on the global car makers for institutional investors and corporates.

He has been following the automotive industry for 10 years and will be aiming to ‘pick tomorrow’s winners’ in the global automotive market, which could have a drastic effect on the shape of the fleet market in the UK.

The industry will be warned that ‘it’s a fight to the death’ for key industry players as they fight to retain market share and restrain increases in costs.

Well-known broadcaster Huw Edwards will chair the event, which also includes a focus on customer service and its role in the fleet market.

Among the experts brought together for breakout sessions at the event are three of Britain’s leading fleet managers, who will give a personal view on where suppliers need to improve their standards of service.
