Expert training session targets international fleet managers
The day-long session, on Wednesday 29th May, at the Hotel Brussels Airport Van der Valk, will consider the very latest developments in managing international vehicle fleets.
Highlights will include a presentation on running effective tenders plus a case study of his own fleet from Joe Carreira, fleet manager EMEA of global healthcare provider, MSD, and current joint holder of the International Fleet Manager of the Year title.
The expert training session has been specially designed to provide a clear insight into the key elements for successful fleet management. It will examine the different cost elements of running an international fleet, including lease rental, tax, and variable and end of contract costs.
It will also consider how to identify international and external stakeholders, what to manage internationally, where and how to get fleet data, how to launch a tender process and implement the outcome and, finally, how to measure fleet management success.
Other sessions during the day will look at the building blocks of international fleet management and procurement, along with defining international fleet strategy. Speakers will include Marc Van Eck, regional sales manager for ALD International, and Nathalie De Vries, consultant for LeasePlan International.
In the afternoon session, a roundtable discussion, moderated by Joe Carreira, will look at the success factors for fleet strategy optimisation, while tax expert Bart Vanham will consider the trends and alternative solutions in international fleet management.
In the evening before the seminar, sponsor Toyota Motor Europe will be hosting a dinner for all delegates. All participants will also get free access to the Smart Mobility Forum and Awards held at the same venue on the following day, 30th May.
Cedric Millet, senior procurement manager, indirects and services, EMEA, at Ecolab, said: ‘The expert session represents a great opportunity to cross-fertilise with peers and market players. It is a valuable way to keep up with the latest fleet trends.’
Later this year, the autumn expert session will be held in Prague, Czech Republic, on 20th November when the topic will be the “successful integration of Eastern Europe in international fleet management“.
The cost of attending the Brussels expert training session on 29th May is €595, with second participants from the same company charged at €550, and the fee includes all documentation, coffee, lunch and evening dinner.
