  • Do you outsource your fleet management or do you keep it in-house? This often contentious question has some professionals strongly on each side. However, many are on the fence. Understandably, as a strong case can be made for both positions.

  • If you limit yourself to one supplier, you can potentially negotiate better discounts. If you open your fleet to multiple suppliers, suppliers need to compete to try and get your business, which can also lead to better discounts. So what model should you go for? Case study presentations from 3 corporate fleet managers followed by a Q&A with: • Raluca Mosu, Fleet Manager International, IDEXX • Kaska Borrowska, Corporate Services Manager International, IDEXX • Lazlo Kiss, Global Category Manager Fleet, Novartis Business Services GmbH

  • WLTP was designed to ensure official emission figures are actually based on reality. Unfortunately, they are always higher than the previous NEDC numbers. Essentially, that means fleets have two options: ncrease leasing budgets or offer different cars (smaller or more environmentally friendly). Our IFMI partners: • Mark Taylor, International Account Director, Athlon • Shams-Dine El Mouden, International Arval Consulting Director, Arval, present both options and list the pros and cons of each option. This session ends with a Q&A with the audience

  • Many fleet and mobility management decisions are impacted by taxation. With the increasingly rapid change in terms of powertrain taxation, BIK, and mobility incentives, it’s hard to stay up to date. Mazen Al Haffar, VAT Advisor, BDO gives an overview of new company car taxation rules in a number of major EU countries, followed by a Q&A.

  • TCO should reflect changes in fleet management but what elements should it include? Should it be limited to the usual suspects like lease rates and fuel, or should other elements, like loss of productivity because of traffic jams, be taken into account? Workshop session where the attendees produce a new TCO Formula via working groups in café model set-up, moderated by the IFMI Partners: Sjoerd Brenters, LeasePlan; Anne Chidiac, ALD Automotive; Shams-Dine El Mouden, Arval and Mark Taylor, Athlon. Workshop topics: • Does loss of productivity due to long commutes, traffic jams, insufficient parking space… have an impact on TCO? • How to calculate the TCO of electric vehicles? • How to calculate the TCO of mobility solutions (shared cars, ride hailing,..) • Is parking cost part of TCO? • Is flexible office space part of TCO?

  • Different flees sizes require different management practices. A small fleet spread out across a large number of EU countries, for instance, will face other challenges than the same fleet that also has a presence outside the EU. A large fleet that is limited to one country will be easier to manage than a large fleet spread across EU and non-EU countries. How do you put a car policy together in each case? How many leasing companies should you work with? How many brands can you include? Workshop session moderated by the IFMI Partners where the attendees discuss and define the perfect fleet management policy for 4 types of fleet: 1. Small fleet within a lot of countries in EU 2. Small fleet within a lot of countries inside/outside EU 3. Large fleet within one country 4. Large fleet within a lot of countries inside/outside EU via working groups in café model set-up, moderated by the IFMI Partners. Workshop topics: • How to put a car policy together • How many brands to select • How many leasing companies to select • How to communicate with employees • How to do daily fleet management
