A new fleet benchmarking initiative funded by the Department for Transport will be unveiled at the Fleet200 Executive Club virtual meeting on March 30.
The gathering of the UK’s largest professional fleet decision-makers will hear from safety consultant Andy Price and Driving for Better Business campaigns manager Simon Turner, who have been working with a project team of fleet experts in partnership with Roadsafe and Fleet News to create the first national fleet benchmarking programme.
The online tool will enable organisations of all sizes to compare and contrast their safety and environmental performance against others in the same sector, giving them vital insight to improve their fleet operations.
“Most organisations that keep proper records, have driving for work policies and communicate well with their workforce do it because, financially, they know it makes sense,” said Price.
“Benchmarking will help others understand the need to improve and start them on the journey to improve their fleet safety management and realise these financial benefits, too.”
Joining Price and Turner on the presenters’ stage will be Peter Kelly, group compliance and fleet manager at Elis, who will provide an overview of his fleet, including his use of data to maximise efficiencies. Read more about Kelly’s business processes.
Rivus Fleet Solutions has been announced as the latest sponsor of the Fleet200, joining BP, Masternaut, Skoda and Volkswagen Financial Services – all of which will have representatives at the meeting.
Jason Chamberlain, sales and marketing director at Rivus, said: “We’re delighted to join the Fleet200 Executive Club. These quarterly meetings provide an opportunity to network, listen, learn and share meaningful insight alongside some of the UK’s largest fleet operators. It is an incredible time to be involved in the automotive sector. Fleet operators have an array of considerations in managing their fleet today, and the sector experience within the Fleet200 will help us collectively make better and informed decisions.”
In addition to listening to the two presentations, delegates at the March 30 meeting will have the opportunity to discuss with peers some of the major challenges they are facing within their fleet operations during the ‘three burning issues’ group discussion.
The Fleet200 Executive Club is a group of the most influential fleets operating in the UK.
It produces research on key fleet trends and holds events which bring together the UK’s most professional fleet decision makers to debate the issues of importance to their businesses, share ideas on new initiatives and industry developments, and hear from outstanding, thought-provoking speakers.
