An impressive panel of industry experts has been assembled to discuss ‘the future of fleet’ at Fleet Management Live at the NEC, Birmingham, on October 6-7.
They will include motor industry expert Dr Aman Dhir, who is centre manager of the Doctoral Training Centre in Fuel Cells and Their Fuels, and teaching fellow at the University of Birmingham.
He will be joined by Paul Marchment, market development Manager, from Arval and Jayne Pett, Interactive Fleet Management’s commercial director.
The event is being chaired by Stephen Briers, editor-in-chief of Fleet News. He said: “For many there may be a sense that the fleet industry is already changing at an unprecedented rate, yet all the predictions are that there’s more to come, so forecasting the shape of your company car parc may feel like a near impossibility.
“As the rate of change in technology continues to accelerate, the possibilities for micromanagement will become almost limitless.
“Vehicle manufacturers are pioneering dedicated, in-car operating systems and, of course, there’s the arrival of autonomous cars.
“Also, while technology seems all the rage in the drive to reduce fleet costs or improve employee productivity, we are only just beginning to tap the full potential of technology in the workplace.
“However, advancement in automotive technology is only one aspect. Many other issues are on the horizon, such as industry consolidation, outsourcing and new legislation.
“Fleet decision makers need to prepare for and understand their full impact if they are to successfully get to grips with fleet management.”
