Automotive Fleet has launched its new “Fleet Momentum” series, which is designed to offer a forward-looking perspective on industry trends, hosted by AF Editor Mike Antich.

Today’s inaugural Fleet Momentum video features Brendan P. Keegan, CEO of Merchants Fleet, who participated in a wide-ranging conversation with Antich. Topics addressed included the increasing electrification of fleets, the growth in vehicle connectivity, the evolving role of fleet managers as “data scientists,” and the evolution of e-commerce businesses.

During their in-depth conversation, they addressed growing fleet sustainability initiatives and opportunities, why connected and autonomous vehicles will become more important in the future for fleets, and what impact the evolution of e-commerce will have on the industry.
