During the 5th International Fleet Meeting, held by fleetcompetence Group and aboutfleet in Geneva on March 7, 2018, the international consulting firm fleetcompetence Group announced that it has expanded its geographical footprint by attracting additional partners in North America, Asia, the Pacific region and Africa. This step is in line with the continued strong demand for support in international fleet projects.
As Tobias Kern, Managing Partner, explains, “The company now has proven fleet management experts in these regions who have many years of experience in this segment. As a result, customers operating fleets globally can now be supported worldwide.”
Tobias Kern is a proven expert in international fleet projects. In addition to Europe, he has managed projects in North and South America. His expertise is in great demand worldwide and he will hold a multi-day workshop on “Vehicle Fleet Management Cost Optimization” in Dubai and in Singapore.
Kern also reports that another innovative project is underway, with fleetcompetence supporting the complete conversion of an international fleet to e-vehicles for the first time. From this, the company expects an important signal effect towards sustainable mobility.
The fleetcompetence group noted an enormous demand for international consulting services on the part of fleet operators in the past year. In total, projects were carried out for fleets with a total volume of more than 25,000 vehicles. The scope of the projects ranged from the analysis of potential through tenders for the selection of vehicle manufacturers, leasing companies and fleet management service providers, as well as the implementation of project results. In addition, there are increasing requests for projects to develop international car policies.
Thilo v. Ulmenstein, Managing Partner fleetcompetence Group, explains that this gratifying demand reflects a clear market trend. In particular, large international companies and more and more medium-sized companies recognize the potential in the internationalization of their fleet strategy.
Ulmenstein explains the demand for fleetcompetence group services by saying that the company is the only independent provider that can support international fleet projects worldwide with high expertise and in-depth know-how. A key success factor is that the company combines local expertise and know-how with a central project management to efficiently support customers in achieving their international goals.
