Successful managers will say that global fleet challenges are truly universal and by effectively networking with other fleet professionals it can lead to quicker problem resolutions and creative solutions, saving fleet organizations valuable time and money.
With this in mind, the Global Fleet Conference was created, which is now in its third year. The next conference will be held June 15-16, 2015 at the Miami Marriott Biscayne Bay Hotel in Miami, Fla.
The agenda for the 2015 Global Fleet Conference is based on actual corporate case studies presented by peer fleet managers, discussing specific areas such as:
- How to create a global fleet organization.
- Real-world advice in developing a global fleet policy.
- How to implement a global fleet safety program.
- Best practices in global sourcing.
- KPIs to implement a global sustainability program.
A more detailed description of these and other seminar topics can be found at the event Web site.
These seminars are designed to discuss not only what works, but, more importantly, what didn’t work. There are many smart people in the fleet industry and no one intentionally pursues an initiative knowing it will prove ineffective, but it happens. By attending the 2015 Global Fleet Conference, you will learn what didn’t work and you can avoid repeating these pitfalls.
The Global Fleet Conference is an excellent opportunity to connect and collaborate with other fleet managers. The knowledge and experience available at the conference, from the number of managers responsible for multinational fleets, will provide the greatest opportunity to learn about global fleet management. You can’t find this information in a white paper; you have to attend in person. “This conference cannot be missed,” stressed Keith Scolan, manager, global fleet for ITW - Illinois Tool Works Inc.
These networking opportunities will allow fleet managers and stakeholders to learn from their peers about best practices in managing a global or multinational fleet. In addition, the conference will provide a venue to network with key representatives from major global fleet management companies, fleet suppliers, and OEMs.
The idea of a global fleet conference has resonated with fleet managers at many of the world’s largest multinational organizations, and this is best exemplified by the fact that the first two conferences were completely sold out. The Global Fleet Conference is a joint venture between Bobit Business Media and Nexus Communication, which alternate the annual conference between North America and the European Union.
