On March 7, 2018, the international fleet management community gathered in Geneva for the fifth time for the International Fleet Meeting. The conference is held by fleetcompetence and aboutfleet on the second press day of the Geneva Motor Show.
In the course of the conference with 250 international participants, fleetcompetence Group announced that over the past few months agreements have been made with cooperation partners that now offer specialized advice to fleet operators around the world. The already existing network of fleet experts in Europe and South America has now been extended to North America, Asia, the Pacific and Africa by additional partners.
As Tobias Kern, Managing Partner, explains, the company now also has proven experts in fleet management in these regions who have many years of experience in this segment. As a result, customers operating fleets globally can now be supported worldwide.
Tobias Kern himself is a proven expert in international fleet projects. In addition to Europe, he has already managed such in North and South America. His expertise is in great demand worldwide. He will hold a multi-day workshop on "Vehicle Fleet Management Cost Optimization" in Dubai and in Singapore.
The fleetcompetence group noted an enormous demand for international consulting services on the part of the fleet operators in the past year. In total, projects were carried out for fleets with a total volume of more than 25,000 vehicles. The scope of the projects ranged from the analysis of potential through tenders for the selection of vehicle manufacturers, leasing companies and fleet management service providers, as well as the implementation of project results. In addition, there are increasing requests for projects to develop international car policies.
Thilo v. Ulmenstein, Managing Partner fleetcompetence Group, explains that this gratifying demand reflects a clear market trend. In particular, large international companies, but also more and more medium-sized companies, would recognize the potential in the internationalization of their fleet strategy.
He explains the demand for fleetcompetence group services by saying that the company is the only independent provider that can support international fleet projects worldwide with high expertise and in-depth know-how. A key success factor is that the company combines local expertise and know-how with a central project management to efficiently support customers in achieving their international goals.
As Tobias Kern concludes, another innovative project is already underway, with fleetcompetence supporting the complete conversion of an international fleet to e-vehicles for the first time. From this, the company expects an important signal effect towards sustainable mobility.
