Sue Branston, Country Head for Fleet Logistics UK and Ireland, has been named as one of the finalists in this year’s everywoman awards in transport and logistics.
The everywoman awards, now in their 12th year, recognize the efforts of woman within the transport and logistics sector in the UK. From freight and rail to retail and architecture, they showcase the range of opportunities that redefine an industry traditionally seen to offer only manual, male-dominated jobs.
Branston, who has over 30 years’ experience in the automotive and fleet sector with a number of leading national companies, said:” I’m absolutely thrilled and delighted to be shortlisted for these prestigious awards, which recognize the crucial roles that women play within modern business.”

If fleet managers want to come out on top in the race to managing mobility, they’d be well advised to keep tabs on the unfolding fortunes of Uber and Lyft
By Andrew Boada, Editor at Large
As the ride-hailing leaders Uber and Lyft revealed when they went public, they’re betting their future on self-driving cars. The question, though, is: will they still be around as we know them by the time fully autonomous vehicles have actually arrived and are accepted by the riding public?
Perhaps more than any others, Uber and Lyft have become the most visible representatives of what’s referred to as the “Mobility Revolution,” which, in a few words, means changing from a world where people own and drive their own fossil-fueled vehicles to shared, electrified, connected and self-driving means of transportation.

NAFA’s website offers interactive “communities” of fellow professionals for inquiries, answers, insights and best practices
By Mark Boada, Executive Editor
Every fleet manager needs to take a look at one of the latest NAFA Fleet Management Association online communications initiatives: pages devoted to members sharing challenges, solutions and insights with each other, along with libraries of presentations, segment-specific training, and other documents about cutting-edge best practices.

Vehicles collect a lot of unusual data. But who owns it?
Cars produced today are essentially smartphones with wheels. For drivers, this has meant many new features: automatic braking, turn-by-turn directions, infotainment. But for all the things we’re getting out of our connected vehicles, carmakers are getting much, much more: They’re constantly collecting data from our vehicles.
