Fleet Logistics creates Global Mobility Solutions business
Fleet Logistics has created a new Global Mobility Solutions unit to support fleet customers with key issues covering cost, sustainability and electrification, and corporate mobility in the ‘new normal’.
The new business combines the market intelligence and methodologies from the existing consultancy division with the data management and analytical skills of the international reporting team.
It is led by Thibault Alleyn as the new head of global mobility solutions, who said the launch had been timed to help companies facing a long list of burning issues to tackle following the Covid-19 pandemic.
As well as dealing with immediate concerns on making their fleets more efficient, cost-effective and transparent under the current severe economic challenges, many businesses are also looking closely at introducing a greater share of alternative powertrains, as more people may be home working and travelling less business miles. This makes switching to electrified fleets even more economically relevant than before.
Companies are also redefining mobility options offered to their employees, as more people question the value of a company car in the light of a broader mix of mobility types becoming available, including the mobility budgets and mobility offers of a new ‘sharing’ economy, such as car-sharing, e-bikes and e-scooters.
Fleet Logistics Group’s CEO, Steffen Schick added: “We have formed the Global Mobility Solutions unit to engage with stakeholders around the trends that will shape our future mobility and to help them evaluate what their options are, based on our trademark pragmatic and factual approach.
“Cost effectiveness, sustainability and transparency are approached from six key angles: strategy, technology, policy, change, procurement and process,” he said.
The Global Mobility Solutions unit will also launch a range of publications, including ‘how to’ guides, in-depth country and topical reports, and fleet and mobility spend evolution bulletins.
Thibault Alleyn added: “We wish to play our role as industry experts, and share insights and knowledge with mobility stakeholders, independently of in-house or outsourced management.
“Across Global Mobility Solutions, whether consultancy, reporting, analytics or publications, everything is based on real life, hands-on experience gained from working for some 25 years with some of the world’s major organisations – combined with fact-based forward thinking.”
