Global Fleet Conference 2017: Top Trends in Fleet Management in Europe

Why understanding Europe’s Fleet Business will give you global insight.

In many respects, the Old Continent is a microcosm of the entire world – at least as far as Global Fleet Management is concerned. For despite the unifying attempts of the European Union, Europe remains a patchwork of different countries, economies, cultures, languages and legal systems.

And yet, there are also clearly identifiable pan-European trends. Such as: the boom in SUVs, the pressure on diesel as the preferred fuel, the close-end operational lease model, the growing popularity of alternative mobility – to name but a few.
As a global fleet manager in a multinational organisation, you are dealing with a business environment that is both increasingly complex and more international every day.
You have to keep a lot of plates spinning: aligning your fleet strategy with the overall corporate strategy; learning about and benefiting from regional and local best practices and cultural differences; following the rapid evolution in the technological and digital realms; and keeping an eye on volatility in the economic, financial and legislative spheres.
Those are a lot of very different disciplines to get the hang of. And what better place to learn about them than Europe?
Understanding the Top Trends in Fleet Management in Europe will give you insight into the developments influencing tomorrow’s vehicle fleet and mobility business in Europe – and will serve as a primer into dealing with the multipolar business of Global Fleet Management.
Find out more at the Regional Market Update Session on Europe, at the 2017 Global Fleet Conference, 7 June from 11:20 AM to 12:05 PM.
