The program has been released for the 2024 IPWEA Fleet Conference being held in Brisbane during March and it features speakers that will help Fleet Managers deal with the four dimensions of fleet management.
It’s often said that being a Fleet Manager requires a range of skills and extensive knowledge across many business disciplines. However, when condensed into the key areas, the four dimensions of fleet management are:
Over two days, speakers on the 2024 IPWEA Fleet Conference program will address each of these areas to help attendees understand the challenges they will face during a time of significant change in technology and electrification. Day one will feature the ‘fleets management stuff’ before day two plugs into the rapidly changing landscape of electric vehicles and EV charging infrastructure.
Marc Sibbald, Director of Fleet at IPWEA, believes it’s important to have two distinct themes on each day because there’s still a lot of fleet management to do while the transition to electric cars, trucks and plant is evolving.
“The members of the IPWEA Fleet Council were very clear to me when we were planning the program for the 2024 Fleet Conference,” explains Sibbald. “While they are investigating and developing fleet EV transition plans, they still need to manage the fleet assets every day with annual fleet business plans and 10-year fleet asset management plans.”
“Another important part of the conference is to highlight the success of other Fleet Managers and the opportunities to build a career within the fleet/automotive industry or using fleet asset management as a foundation to move into senior management.”
One way that IPWEA Fleet will celebrate the success of Fleet Managers is the new Fleet Innovation Award which will awarded for the first time at the 2024 Fleet Conference.
The Fleet Innovation Award aims to acknowledge and promote the outstanding achievements in the fleet management industry to set higher standards for the future. This initiative will spotlight innovators and leaders who are shaping the industry through their dedication, creativity, and problem-solving capabilities.
