  • Every industry, every business has been impacted by the pandemic. Transport and mobility have changed, leading to rapidly evolving business models and trends in fleet procurement, fleet utilisation and employee mobility. Now is the time to speed up Post-Covid Fleet Management: we must identify and seize the opportunities of this new era in Fleet and Mobility.

  • 12,000 kilometers through 11 countries in 4 weeks. With an electric car? One month ago Athlon’s Sustainability & CSR Director Alexander Heijkamp crisscrossed Europe traveling in an e-vehicle. He left confidently, even if he was not yet 100% sure he would be able to reach all destinations. While some markets are more mature than others, EV adoption is accelerating in European countries. Transportation is transforming in becoming greener and smarter and we need to get ready. Alexander learned some important lessons which you can benefit from.

  • Sharing our thoughts and ideas about the needed actions to electrify the fleet.

  • Electrification is more than just ordering an EV. You’re going to need to rethink your mobility strategy, but you’ll also need new resources, tools, market data, vehicle models and related services to make your electric journey a success. Our goal is to deliver the new resources and services you need to make your transition as efficient and smooth as possible. Don’t miss our panel where we’ll be showcasing some of the exciting new electrification resources we’ve co-designed with clients to help you master the unknown territory ahead!

  • Your opportunity to extend your fleet and mobility network in the Fleet Europe Village.

  • Care for the environment and awareness about climate change are omnipresent. But how can we translate this into our Fleet & Mobility ecosystem? Let’s discover how corporate fleets can become both sustainable and cost-efficient, without comprising comfort or convenience.

  • Sustainability is a key value amongst most premium and luxury car manufacturers. This presentation will highlight the specific “sustainOble” approach of DS Automobiles in regards to designing sustainably, all the while feeding its aim of representing French automotive luxury & savoir-faire. A focus will be done on the choice of materials, finishes and expected innovations in the coming years.

Defining the problem, exploring vendor information and comparing solutions are essential for a successful implementation for any new product or service. Global Fleet Marketplace is the search engine to identify any product, service or vendor across the globe.

  • Trends in the compensation and benefits ecosystem are evolving in parallel with those in the corporate fleet and mobility world. Fundamentally, it’s about moving from ‘fixed’ to ‘flexible’. This transition is necessary, but complex - yet not impossible. If done right, the benefits are many.

  • Covid 19 has disrupted our place of work, our lifestyles and even our homes. Remote working has become the new norm for a large part of workers. We will try to describe how it is impacting corporate real estate and corporate Mobility.

  • Data will continue to revolutionise the fleet industry and will enable safe and sustainable mobility moving forward. For example, data-driven fleet solutions are key in supporting the whole electrification journey of a fleet. In this presentation you will get insights on how to utilise data to not only build a more efficient but also sustainable fleet of tomorrow.

  • Fleet operators and mobility service providers can utilize the energy ecosystem to reduce their carbon footprint and gain financial value. Want to know how? In this presentation we’ll zoom in on that.

Building on the recent Cox Automotive Insight Report 2021, Paul will take us on a journey through the digital infrastructure that supports physical asset utilisation, focusing on data, connectivity, and the influence of electric vehicles on the shape of the market.

  • Most international companies have joined the Science-Based Targets Initiative and have made their commitment public. There is a very short time left to implement policy, powertrains and, most importantly, tools to capture, interpret and report on the necessary data. In this session, OviDrive’s Director of Consulting, Matthijs Honing, explains the mechanics of greenhouse gas accounting and illustrates the sustainability glidepath with a use case.

  • Both the pandemic and the current semiconductor chip crisis have an unexpected impact on our Fleet and Mobility ecosystem. But these events have not tempered the drive nor the agility of our industry. In this executive panel discussion, we will examine how to build tomorrow’s Fleet and Mobility ecosystem.

  • Welcome participants, purpose and schedule of this session.

  • This session will reflect on Philips’ reasons for introducing a corporate mobility program, its approach, and how this progressive organization has benefitted from its mobility program since the first roll-out, 4 years ago.

  • Offering your employees intelligent and alternative mobility rather than a company car requires you to change your car & mobility policy – but how exactly?
