There are dramatic differences between regional fleet markets around the globe. Yet, despite these differences, there are also many similarities. Many of the challenges facing fleet managers are identical to the challenges facing their counterparts managing fleets elsewhere in the world. Presented will be the Top MegaTrends that will influence global fleet management in the future.

Lunch will begin at 11:15am

PRESENTERS: Mike Antich, Automotive Fleet Magazine; Steven Schoefs, Editor, Fleet Europe Magazine

1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Fleet productivity and technology implementation are perennial concerns that impacts multinational fleets of all segments and sizes across the globe. How productive a company fleet is will help measure out how cost-effective its overall operations are, something closely watched by upper management. Fleet industry professionals in this session will analyze the ins and outs of what make a fleet productive, and also identify the elements of its operations that are holding it back from being as successful as it can be, which attendees can immediately apply to their operations.

1:00pm-2:00pm: Mobility Management from a European Perspective

Megatrends like digitalization, urbanization, and the shift from ownership to usage have been changing our landscape. We see traditional fleet management shifting to mobility management. While we know the future of mobility is filled with autonomous vehicles transporting people and drones delivering packages, the fleet manager (or rather the mobility manager) needs to start forecasting today how it will evaluate new mobility services.

The question is: how does one start? How can you manage mobility alongside managing your fleet now?

Attendees can expect to hear: 

1. How the automobile and fleet management are transforming into an integrated mobility offering
2. What is already becoming (common) practice in the area of E-mobility, Mobility Services, and Mobility Management
3. Useful tips for fleet/mobility managers on how to get started with these new services

Understanding what mobility fleets really means as well as the impact they have on your business will be crucial to a fleet’s success now and in the future.

Let’s take a deep dive into the world of on demand mobility including ride hailing, car sharing, and automotive subscription services.  In addition, we will discuss how connectivity, electric vehicles and last mile delivery fleets will lead us to a world populated with autonomous vehicles.

Attendees can expect to hear: 

1. How connected, autonomous, shared and electric vehicles will impact your fleet operations 
2. How emerging fleets in the on-demand mobility space are impacting new product development for fleet management companies
3. How autonomous vehicles operate in North America today

4:30pm – 5:30pm: The Road to Full Autonomy: Not When, But How
Autonomous vehicles are expected to deliver incredibly efficient, productive, and safe commercial fleet operations. The first waves of autonomous vehicles are already being tested, and the next wave of more advanced self-driving vehicles is not too far away. Fleets are beginning to add autonomous operations, and this will only accelerate. Some of the issues that need to be solved on the road to fully autonomous operation are how to transition from personal liability to product liability coverage; managing interactions between human drivers, pedestrians, and autonomous commercial vehicles; and how cities’ vision zero goals can be achieved. Our expert presenter will describe a multi-party approach — one that involves collaboration between OEMs, technology companies, insurers, and builders — as the key to enabling full autonomy.

Attendees can expect to hear: 

  • Learn more about the current status and near-term advances in autonomous vehicle technology
  • Understand what will be required — from insurance, to infrastructure, to policies — before our fleets are truly autonomous
  • Identify the types of benefits you and your organization can expect to see with the advances of technology en route to full autonomy
