Trakm8 has joined the Association of Fleet Professionals (AFP) as a gold partner, where it will offer advice to its members.

As a gold member, Trakm8 will use its fleet management solutions and data-driven insights to help shape the future of the industry, the company says.

Peter Mansfield, group sales and marketing director at Trakm8, said: “We’re very excited to be joining the AFP, an organisation that shares our values of wanting to engage with the industry and identify areas where we can provide solutions that offer real change.

“We look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with the AFP and the positive impact this will bring to our industry.”

The AFP launched following the merger of the Association of Car Fleet Operators (ACFO) and the Institute of Car Fleet Management (ICFM).

The new combined organisation aims to give fleet decision makers a voice in the industry and help improve the lobbying and training needs of its members.

The AFP is made up of seven committees, covering Government bodies and trade associations, light commercial vehicles (LCVs), electric vehicles (EVs), low carbon and alternative fuels, road use and planning, risk and compliance, future mobility steering, and Covid-19.

The AFP believes that the fleet industry is better placed to handle the challenges of a national lockdown as a result of new skills learnt at the start of the pandemic.
